Network Appliance Executive Vice President Tom Georgens to Deliver Keynote Address at IDEMA DISKCON USA 2007


Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP), a leading provider of storage and data management solutions, will be represented at this year's IDEMA DISKCON keynote dinner by executive vice president of Product Operations Tom Georgens. In his address, Tom will provide perspective on key trends and issues impacting today's storage industry, including how reducing power consumption will affect hard disk drives and how it could be the first real threat to the industry as a whole. In addition, he will share his experiential knowledge on the future of flash drives and overall TCO expectations for these types of drives in the context of ever-changing customer demand. The keynote dinner will take place September 19, 2007, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara, CA.

DISKCON USA 2007 brings together under one roof more than 65 hard drive and solid state companies, giving attendees the opportunity to view the latest technologies enabling hard disk drive and solid state drive applications, including computing and consumer electronic applications. These companies will be showcasing their latest products and technology innovations-in many cases, DISKCON attendees are the first to get a "sneak peek" at what's new or on the horizon. The keynote dinner will be the highlight of the event, with senior executives from NetApp and Seagate delivering keynote addresses that provide perspective on pertinent industry issues, prognostications, and requirements.
