While IEEE 802 Ethernet technology has existed for over 25 years, it lacked an industry voice that represents the spectrum of IEEE 802 Ethernet standards developments. The Ethernet Alliance fills that role. It serves the IEEE 802 Ethernet industry as a whole to assist with the ongoing incubation, development, launch and sustained support of various Ethernet technologies. The Ethernet Alliance is designed to be an organization that will exist as long as Ethernet does.
NetApp is a Principal Member of the Ethernet Alliance, with a representative on the Ethernet Alliance Board of Directors. In addition, NetApp is an active participant in the following subcommittees: Data Center Ethernet, Energy Efficient Ethernet, and Marketing.
