Are you looking for a scale-out storage product that provides an adaptable, always-on storage infrastructure for your virtualized environments? Does your current deployment meet your needs but lack storage efficiency and data protection capabilities? Either way, I think you will find our lead article this month a very interesting read.  It dives into the scale-out capabilities of Data ONTAP® 8 software operating in Cluster-Mode.

In our News Show, our founders, Dave Hitz and James Lau, look back over our 20 years of data storage innovation that led up to the new Data ONTAP 8.
