NetApp Goes “Back to School” with Education Donation Program

NetApp Invites Higher-Education and K–12 Organizations to Apply for Technology Donation

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® FAS3100 storage system. NetApp understands that schools of all levels are faced with shrinking budgets that require them to do 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.
