Editor's Note
Happy New Year! We’ve been working hard at Tech OnTap to keep you up to date on everything going on at NetApp, and across the IT world.

NetApp enters 2015 with great momentum, and Tech OnTap will continue to bring you the latest on hot topics such as cloud and flash, forward-looking articles on industry trends, and deep dives on new technologies and products.

This month, we’ve taken a closer look at transitioning to clustered Data ONTAP. Our second feature highlights the recent NetApp Insight conference.
