SUNNYVALE, Calif.-September 13,
2011-NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) kicked off an Education
Donation Program this week that will provide higher-education and
K-12 schools with the opportunity to receive a new NetApp®

more with less. This program enables NetApp to partner with schools
across the country to help them achieve the efficiency and
flexibility required to maximize their IT infrastructure and
deliver on their educational objectives.
The Education Donation Program will provide
approximately 1,800 individual hardware donations through the end
of 2011, or until donations run out. The donations are part of a
long-term investment to improve education IT; NetApp will provide
all recipients with continued expert support, services, and the
tools to make IT a driver for successful schools.
