Business Highlights

During the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, NetApp extended its product and technology innovation leadership, strengthened its alliance ecosystem of strategic best-of-breed partnerships, and continued to be recognized as one of the world's best places to work. On the product front, NetApp announced enhancements to its FAS3000 storage systems and its E-Series platform to address customers' varied workload environments. NetApp also deepened its partnerships with industry leaders Cisco and Citrix, and announced a new integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Finally, NetApp became the official data storage provider of the NFL.

Highlights include:
NetApp Acquires ionGrid

  • NetApp has completed the acquisition of ionGrid, a privately-held software company based in Mountain View, Calif. The acquisition provides NetApp customers with a secure, simple to use solution for accessing enterprise file shares from mobile devices. Financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed at this time.

FAS and E-Series Innovation Helps Customers Fuel Growth

  • New FAS midrange storage systems provide foundation for agile data infrastructure. The new FAS3220 and FAS3250 systems are flash-enabled and leverage clustered Data ONTAP to address customer requirements for performance and nonstop operations. Both systems help enterprises and midsized businesses that are consolidating operations onto a shared storage platform improve performance by up to 80% and increase storage capacity up to 100% over existing midrange products.
  • Customers accelerate big data innovation and analysis with enhanced E-Series storage platform. The updated E-Series platform includes the addition of SSD cache for improved performance, a broadening of network interface support for the E5400 storage system for increased connectivity and network flexibility, and new mirroring and replication services for greater data protection. The enhanced platform provides customers with the foundation to build innovative storage systems that deliver superior performance for the most challenging big data workloads.

Deeper Integration with Partners Enables Customers to Innovate in the Cloud

  • NetApp and Cisco expand partnership to unify branch office, data center, and public cloud environments with FlexPod® architecture. The partnership expansion includes efforts in technology integration, solution development, and continued go-to-market collaboration to make it easier for customers to deploy and access next-generation cloud infrastructure solutions. The announcement builds on the already strong momentum FlexPod is experiencing with more than 2,100 customers across more than 35 countries and over 700 channel partners.
  • NetApp teams with Amazon Web Services to help customers connect their existing infrastructure to the AWS cloud. NetApp unveiled NetApp® Private Storage for AWS, an enterprise storage solution that allows customers to replicate data from on-premise NetApp storage environments to NetApp Private Storage, and through AWS Direct Connect they can leverage on-demand cloud services. With this solution customers can build an agile cloud infrastructure that balances internal data center resources along with AWS cloud resources to best meet their business needs.
  • NetApp and Citrix collaborate on secure file sharing and on-premise storage solution for enterprise customers. Citrix ShareFile customers now have access to NetApp FAS and V-Series storage systems running clustered Data ONTAP. The new solution will allow customers who store their data on premise to leverage NetApp Data ONTAP software to access data, scale performance and capacity, reduce data center footprint, and reduce costs.

Customers Build on NetApp to Accelerate Business Operations

NetApp Usage of Non-GAAP Financials
The Company refers to the non-GAAP financial measures cited above in making operating decisions because they provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's ongoing operational performance. Non-GAAP net income excludes the amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related income and expenses, restructuring and other charges, asset impairments, non-cash interest expense associated with our debt, net losses or gains on investments, and our GAAP tax provision, but includes a non-GAAP tax provision based upon our projected annual non-GAAP effective tax rate for the first three quarters of the fiscal year and an actual non-GAAP tax provision for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year. We have excluded these items in order to enhance investors' understanding of our ongoing operations. The use of these non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations because they should not be used to evaluate our Company without reference to their corresponding GAAP financial measures. As such, we compensate for these material limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures.

These non-GAAP financial measures are used to: (1) measure Company performance against historical results, (2) facilitate comparisons to our competitors' operating results, and (3) allow greater transparency with respect to information used by management in financial and operational decision making. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are used to measure Company performance for the purposes of determining employee incentive plan compensation. We have historically reported similar non-GAAP financial measures to our investors and believe that the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in our financial reporting at this time.
