Network Appliance and ESRI Enhance Relationship to Provide Complete Solutions for GIS Deployments

Network Appliance, Inc., a provider of enterprise network storage solutions, and ESRI, a world leader in geographic information system (GIS), announced a formal reseller relationship to deliver networked storage solutions to ESRI customers. ESRI is now an authorized reseller of NetApp storage systems. Through this relationship, ESRI will offer NetApp products to its customers, providing complete solutions for GIS environments that now encompass enterprise-class storage. NetApp storage solutions have been tested and proven compatible with ESRI software. As such, ESRI customers using ArcGIS and ArcSDE can reap benefits from the simplicity and power of NetApp storage. These benefits include centralized data management, the ability to share ESRI data across the network, fast access to both current and archived GIS data, flexible implementation of disaster recovery configurations with NetApp SnapMirror software and NearStore systems, and a low total cost of ownership.
