I have some exciting news to share: SteelStore is now a part of NetApp. The same SteelStore that you know and love now lives at NetApp. That includes not just the technology, but the people, including engineering, support, product management, and marketing (yours truly). Overall, this is great news for everyone, if you’re a SteelStore customer already, your investment is protected and enhanced by the acquisition. If you’re a NetApp customer who has been looking for a way to securely and efficiently leverage cloud storage for backup and archive, SteelStore will soon be available to demo and purchase from NetApp. Not only that, but NetApp is providing more resources and a wealth of infrastructure to the SteelStore team, and the result will allow us to accelerate our pace of innovation.
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our ‘parents’ at Riverbed, but the team is very excited to take SteelStore to the next level at NetApp. More information is coming soon, but in the meantime, please reach out if you have questions or concerns! And if you're at AWS Re:Invent next week please stop by and say hello to us at the NetApp Booth (#615).
