Business Highlights
NetApp is built on a culture of innovation that aims to provide customers with the best experience possible. This comes not only from NetApp's direct relationship with customers, but also by delivering compelling technology solutions and forging best-in-class partnerships.

In its second quarter of fiscal year 2013, NetApp's culture of innovation was on display across every aspect of its business. NetApp continued to strengthen and extend its best-of-breed partner ecosystem by announcing new joint solutions and key integrations with industry leaders such as Cisco, Microsoft, VMware, Oracle, and Citrix that will help customers of all sizes accelerate their businesses. A foundational component to several of the new joint offerings is NetApp's Data ONTAP, the world's #1 storage operating system.

Highlights include:

NetApp Announces Definitive Agreement to Acquire CacheIQ, Inc.

  • NetApp has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire CacheIQ, Inc., a privately held storage solutions company based in Austin, Texas. The acquisition will provide NetApp with intellectual property that extends its capabilities to support nondisruptive operations for enterprise data center environments. NetApp will integrate this intellectual property into its product offerings over time. Financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed at this time.

Best-in-Class Partner Integration Fuels Innovation for Customers

  • NetApp and Cisco expand data center infrastructure solutions for midsized businesses to large enterprises. The FlexPod data center platform now features support and validation for VMware vSphere on NetApp clustered Data ONTAP to help organizations drive growth by adding nodes to their storage cluster creating large storage pools that span storage devices and can scale almost infinitely. The two companies also introduced ExpressPod, a prepackaged and tested solution for growing small and medium-sized organizations that require increased IT efficiency and simplicity. Celebrating its two-year anniversary, more than 1,500 organizations in 35 countries are accelerating their transition to the cloud with FlexPod. Additionally, more than 660 certified FlexPod Partners around the world are helping these customers deploy their infrastructures more quickly and easily.
  • NetApp and Microsoft technology collaboration drives public, private, and hybrid cloud migration. NetApp announced support for Windows Server 2012 with storage solutions for server and desktop virtualization, storage and availability, Web and application platform development, and private cloud deployment. For organizations of any size and in any industry, this close collaboration simplifies and accelerates how storage is pooled, provisioned, accessed, and managed in Windows environments.
  • NetApp and VMware team up to accelerate customers' transition to an agile data infrastructure. NetApp and VMware continue to build on their nearly 10 year partnership by unveiling integration between VMware vSphere 5.1 and NetApp clustered Data ONTAP. The integration will also enable customers to securely manage and deploy infinite storage pools and to deliver nondisruptive migration of data among hundreds of virtual machines at a time. Customers will be able to achieve continuous data access and uninterrupted business operations as their infrastructures grow and scale in capacity and performance.
  • NetApp and Oracle integration helps customers reduce cost and complexity of managing business-critical applications. NetApp achieved Oracle Validated Integration of the NetApp Storage System Plug-In version 1.0 with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, extending the application-to-disk coverage of Oracle Enterprise Manager environments that include NetApp managed storage. As a result, customers will benefit from improved risk management and smoother upgrade capabilities, leading to lower total cost of ownership and greater overall satisfaction.
  • NetApp and Citrix collaborate to simplify cloud storage. NetApp and Citrix announced an extension of their current collaboration aimed at accelerating the adoption of enterprise cloud deployments. The two companies will provide a fully integrated cloud orchestration and storage solution that will address storage automation, resource allocation, and virtual machine backup and recovery. The move greatly simplifies cloud storage deployment for customers and will result in faster transitions to private and hybrid clouds.

NetApp Enhances Flash Portfolio and Ecosystem

  • NetApp Flash Accel helps customers enhance application and server performance. NetApp introduced NetApp Flash Accel to speed customer application performance by turning server-side Flash into a cache for storing "hot," frequently accessed data. From servers to their back-end storage, cost- and performance-conscious system architects can now balance how Flash is used within their organizations to maximize application performance, minimize rising IT costs, preserve high availability, protect data, and simplify management. NetApp also expanded its Alliance Partner Program to embrace hardware and software server-caching partners looking to develop solutions with NetApp. This will provide the widest coverage for joint customers' infrastructures as they deploy server-side caching to deliver increased ROI.
  • NetApp signs technology reseller agreement with Fusion-io. As part of its commitment to providing customers with end-to-end Flash technologies, NetApp entered into a resale agreement with Fusion-io, a leader in Flash memory solutions. NetApp will continue to resell Fusion-io ioMemory platform products and two server caching software products: ioTurbine for virtualized environments and Direct Cache for nonvirtualized environments.

NetApp Recognized for Its Culture and Innovative Spirit

  • NetApp repeats as one of the world's most innovative companies. For the second consecutive year, NetApp made Forbes magazine's "World's Most Innovative Companies" list for 2012. As the only storage vendor to make this year's list, the recognition is a testament to NetApp's 20 years of innovation and true innovative spirit which continues to thrive today to help customers and partners achieve great business outcomes.
  • NetApp cements its standing as one of the world's best places to work. NetApp was named the #3 best workplace in the world by the Great Place to Work Institute on November 13, 2012. It marks the second consecutive year that NetApp finished in the top 5 of this exclusive list and is a testament to the company's unique workplace culture and commitment to employee excellence which help produce great results for NetApp customers and partners.

(1) GAAP earnings per share is calculated using the diluted number of shares for all periods presented.
(2) Non-GAAP net income excludes the amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related income and expenses, restructuring and other charges, asset impairments, non-cash interest expense associated with our convertible debt, net losses or gains on investments, and our GAAP tax provision, but includes a non-GAAP tax provision based upon our projected annual non-GAAP effective tax rate for the first three quarters of the fiscal year and an actual non-GAAP tax provision for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year. Non-GAAP earnings per share is calculated using the diluted number of shares for all periods presented.

NetApp Usage of Non-GAAP Financials
The Company refers to the non-GAAP financial measures cited above in making operating decisions because they provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's ongoing operational performance. Non-GAAP net income excludes the amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related income and expenses, restructuring and other charges, asset impairments, non-cash interest expense associated with our convertible debt, net losses or gains on investments, and our GAAP tax provision, but includes a non-GAAP tax provision based upon our projected annual non-GAAP effective tax rate for the first three quarters of the fiscal year and an actual non-GAAP tax provision for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year. We have excluded these items in order to enhance investors' understanding of our ongoing operations. The use of these non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations because they should not be used to evaluate our Company without reference to their corresponding GAAP financial measures. As such, we compensate for these material limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures.

These non-GAAP financial measures are used to: (1) measure Company performance against historical results, (2) facilitate comparisons to our competitors' operating results, and (3) allow greater transparency with respect to information used by management in financial and operational decision making. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are used to measure Company performance for the purposes of determining employee incentive plan compensation. We have historically reported similar non-GAAP financial measures to our investors and believe that the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in our financial reporting at this time.
