NetApp Showcases Heterogeneous Backup and Retention Solution at HIMSS New Orleans

What: Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP) will highlight data management solutions that help healthcare organizations better manage, access, and protect their mission-critical business and patient care data while addressing regulations that require data permanence, security, and privacy and help reduce business risks and improve information access at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference in New Orleans. From February 25 to March 1, 2007, NetApp will demonstrate the capabilities of its NearStore® Virtual Tape Library (VTL) solution, a disk-to-disk backup appliance widely adopted by healthcare organizations that appears as a tape library to a backup software application to provide superior speed and reliability of disk technologies.
