Company to showcase latest product portfolio at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK
Global storage and data management solutions provider, NetApp, today announced that it will showcase its product and solution portfolio at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK 2014, with a particular emphasis on NetApp Data ONTAP, its open networked branded storage operating system.
NetApp's booth will feature its FAS, E-Series, Flash and FlexPod portfolio. The company is also partnering with NEC and Axis to showcase a face recognition solution in connection with their E-Series video surveillance storage solutions.
"This is NetApp's first time having our own stand at GITEX, and we're very excited to be a part of one of the world's leading technology trade shows," said Fadi Kanafani, regional director Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan NetApp. "Having previously showcased our solutions through our partners, we are keen to engage directly with all of our stakeholders in the region this year, including customers, prospects, alliance and reselling partners."
Kanafani added: "We believe that GITEX is a great opportunity to grow the NetApp footprint in the region, and not only showcase our innovative, world-class solutions portfolio, but also demonstrate its relevance to the region.
With the rising demand for data stemming from infrastructure development ahead of Expo 2020 in Dubai and World Cup 2022 in Qatar, as well as on-going investments in Saudi Arabia's transportation, health care and education sectors, the Middle Eastern region is now experiencing a surge in demand for robust storage solutions. NetApp is uniquely positioned to provide these solutions, both through our varied portfolio, and wide channel network in the region."
In addition to the solutions, NetApp will be featuring clustered Data ONTAP; ONTAP delivers a unified storage platform that enables unrestricted, secure data movement across multiple cloud environments and paves the way for Software-Defined Data Centres, offering advanced performance, availability, and efficiency.
Clustered Data ONTAP provides a next-generation storage solution that delivers non-disruptive operations and massive scale that can accommodate mixed workloads and multiple SLAs on a shared infrastructure, with support for high-speed applications as well as large content repositories.
