“Flash solutions are changing the expectations and economics of enterprise IT,” says Gary de Menezes, country manager of NetApp South Africa. “NetApp offers the industry’s broadest all flash portfolio, allowing customers to move toward an all flash data centre while still using what they’ve already deployed and leveraging the cloud. Our new Flash Advantage 3-4-5 Program makes flash even more affordable, efficient, and risk-free – and we guarantee it.”
