Washington, D.C. - March 26, 2008 - NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) will be presenting at the upcoming FOSE 2008 Conference, "Technology Solutions for the Business of Government." Mike McNamara, senior manager of Solutions Marketing at NetApp and Fibre Channel Industry Association Marketing Committee chair, will discuss the evolution of Fibre Channel and future solutions that will drive LAN and SAN network convergence in the data center. FOSE 2008 will take place from March 31 to April 3, 2008.

FOSE features groundbreaking education, smart solutions, and unparalleled networking events and programs. The event brings together an audience that shares a passion for computing and technology, and is the gold standard for government technology events.

Come see NetApp and learn how customers have leveraged NetApp® Ethernet-based solutions in their data centers to achieve growth and performance objectives not otherwise possible. Enterprise customers use NetApp's unified architecture to adapt to changing needs, taking advantage of the flexibility to add Fibre Channel SAN within the same platform as their Ethernet-based solution, and to deploy, manage, and recover data for both file-based and block-based storage. Results are streamlined IT operations and higher staff and asset productivity. This flexibility has also led thousands of customers to deploy NetApp for their virtual server environments.
