Do you ever feel like you shift your attention for a minute and miss the news you were waiting for or the best play of the game?

 

Well, here’s a way to catch up. Every month or so, we’ll highlight news of interest to the NetApp technical community. Besides product launches and software updates, we’ll focus on opportunities to engage with NetApp and the broader community. If a product team is looking for beta testers, we’ll let you know. We’ll also give you regular updates on new features in tools like the NetApp® Active IQ® tool and the Harvest data collector.

 

So, let’s get started.
