NetApp is a key member of the Ethernet Alliance, which represents the IEEE 802 Ethernet industry as a whole.
While IEEE 802 Ethernet technology has existed for more than 30 years, for most of that time it lacked an industry voice representing the full spectrum of IEEE 802 Ethernet standards developments. The Ethernet Alliance fills that role, serving the entire IEEE 802 Ethernet industry 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 exists as long as Ethernet does.
NetApp is a Principal Member of the Ethernet Alliance, with a representative on the Ethernet Alliance Board of Directors. NetApp also is an active participant in the Data Center Ethernet and the Marketing committees.
