A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him - David Brinkley
Over the last week we sold several NetApp F840's and F820's. Some of these have had transferable licenses. We have also sent out quite a few DS14 shelves with 72GB drives and 144GB drives. Additionally, we installed an NetApp R100 and are expecting to be installing several more licensed filers in the next few weeks. The outlook for our systems and parts sales is excellent for 2006.
We have also picked up an astonishing number of NetApp service and hardware support contracts in the last few weeks. As I have said in the past, the more we sell the more we seem to need to inventory. And this is for two reasons, first we take our commitment to our support customers very seriously, so we stock an enormous amount of NetApp spares. Second, the more we sell the more folks learn about us, and so our stocking levels need to increase to support our growing customer base.
We are now working on building up our stocking levels of NetApp FAS940, NetApp FAS960 and NetApp R150 parts. Depending on your Zip Code may now be able to supply you from our 4 hour parts depots.
