“Right or wrong, the customer is always right.” Marshall Field
The response to our study of the performance of the NetApp 940 compared to the FAS3020 has been enlightening. But it may be that NetApp’s customers are asking the same price / performance questions that we did in our study. Because, NetApp’s executives are noticing thatit is harder to sell the new units.
NetApp chief executive Dan Warmenhoven said the company’s FAS300 series of storage appliances launched in May was the victim of a long sales cycle.
Potential customers required an unusually long evaluation period to compare the new products to similar systems from NetApp and competitors, he said.
Often upgrading an existing system makes more budgetary sense than purchasing a new system. If you are looking to increase your storage without breaking you budget please give Zerowait a call at 888.811.0808.
