On behalf of the entire NetApp team, I want to express our heartfelt hope that each of you and your loved ones are safe and healthy and, where necessary, that you are receiving the care you need. You have my commitment that we will take every necessary step to be the best partner in this quickly changing situation.
The impacts of COVID-19 are evolving rapidly. I want to share the steps that NetApp has taken and continues to take to keep our team and communities safe, minimize the spread of COVID-19, and deliver on our business commitments to all our key stakeholders.
NetApp is committed to helping you navigate these uncertain times and prepare for what comes next. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to understand how our team, experience and solutions can help.
We are also committed to helping our communities and are matching employee donations to COVID response organizations around the world. We are also evaluating other ways to help the most vulnerable.
As I said to our internal team, I am confident that we will find ways to cope, endure and become even stronger. Already there are early signs of progress in some parts of the world. I am certain that there will be a brighter morning that follows this patch of darkness. It may take a little while getting there, but with hope, faith, courage, hard work and persistence, it will come. And we will be stronger together.
