FreeBSD in NetApp

According to a Press release today FreeBSD is "providing key components " of NetApp filers.

FreeBSD technology can be found throughout the IT industry, providing key components of Apple's OS X, network infrastructure from Juniper, Nokia, IronPort and other vendors, storage appliances from NetApp and Isilon, and even appearing from time to time in Microsoft Windows, among many other products.

I wonder how much of the "magic" of NetApp Filers is made up of FreeBSD?

Data ONTAP GX is running on FreeBSD. http://blogs.netapp.com/dave/2007/04/is_data_ontap_b.html

The original Data ONTAP is based on Berkley net/2.
