Change the world with data!

Technology has changed our lives. Today, the growth of data across all industries has a huge impact on big corporations as well as individuals. At NetApp we help to manage and protect the world’s data. Make sure to pass by our booth at GITEX in Hall 6 to hear more.

NetApp is excited to participate in GITEX 2017. I am very proud that our presence and with that our commitment to the MENA region has been increasing every year. A truly international NetApp team with experts from over 10 countries will await you at our booth to focus on key topics such as:

  • Data analytics solutions as powerful tools to turn your data collections into true treasure troves.
  • NetApp as a partner for energy, telco, public sector and banking to accelerate business transformation.
  • Leading in Flash: How you can meet the challenges of increased video surveillance data.

Another major focus at Gitex will be NetApp HCI, our enterprise-scale hyper converged infrastructure. The number of data centers in the Middle East has been growing gradually over the last years. These data centers require storage that’s as innovative as the business models they must enable. NetApp HCI breaks free from the limits of today’s hyper converged infrastructure solutions to deliver guaranteed performance, increased agility, and easy automation.

Our mission at NetApp is to change the world with data. Pass by our booth at Gitex in Hall 6, CLD-21 to hear more!
