If you’re looking for entertainment, consider these popular trios: Charlie’s Angels, the Three Stooges, and the ‘70s rock band Rush—especially Rush’s performance of Xanadu. A classic.
If you’re looking for information, check out the new NetApp® e-book, 3 Benefits of running your business-critical applications on NetApp. Not surprisingly, the e-book describes three benefits:

But if you’re looking at how to enhance customer and employee interaction with your SAP, Oracle, and SQL Server databases and applications, keep downtime at bay, and take advantage of what the cloud has to offer, then you need go no further than this e-book. It’s a quick and enlightening read—I promise.
