Network Appliance Refreshes NetCache® Portfolio
Sunnyvale, Calif. - June 23, 2005 -
Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP) unveiled two new midrange
NetCache systems today-the NetApp® C2300 and
C3300-to strengthen the company's Internet access and security
solution for enterprise data centers. The C2300 and C3300 provide
more midrange deployment options than the previous NetCache
portfolio. The new systems double NetCache price performance
compared to older NetCache systems.
"Internet access and security have become hot
topics in an era of growing spyware, spam, phishing attacks, and
viruses," said Dave Kresse, senior director and general manager of
the Content Delivery business unit at Network Appliance. "Corporate
users rely on the Internet for a variety of productivity and
communications tools, research, and collaborative computing. But
the same Internet that makes workers productive can be disastrous
to a company's technology infrastructure if malicious programs are
inadvertently-or purposefully-downloaded and unleashed.
Additionally, in an age of increased corporate scrutiny of employee
behavior, our Internet access and security solution provides
effective controls to enforce corporate policies on employee
Internet use and Web surfing."
The new NetApp NetCache C2300 and C3300 round
out the complete NetCache family, which can be used for Internet
access and security, business applications acceleration for users
in remote and distributed enterprise locations, and Internet
streaming and video delivery. The C2300 offers 1GB of RAM and
scalability from two to six internal disk drives. The C3300 is the
market's midrange performance leader with 2GB of RAM and
scalability from two to twenty drives. The NetCache family is an
integral part of the full NetApp data management suite of products
and gives customers another option to fine-tune their data
infrastructure for maximum performance, uptime, and protection.
NetApp NetCache C2300 and C3300 systems are
available immediately. Pricing is available upon request from
NetApp Sales or NetApp distribution and channel partners.
