NetApp Technology rocks!
No, I am not talking about rockstars, although NetApp is consistent with earnings, growth, and open employee culture.
I walked around their campus and actually found these huge NetApp Technology rocks on each side of a walking path close to Building 1. Look closely at the design stamped on the inside of the rocks.

Sometimes I think people may become obsessed with two or three key technology companies that are always in the news ~ please remember these stories of several other companies - ones not in the headlines everyday, yet contribute to worldwide business everyday.
Of course , there are the other stories of the suppliers - pipeline to each of these companies - selling their goods and services to all of these key companies ~ this is the heartbeat of Silicon Valley.

What do they do? They sell data management systems - I found a fun, non-techical description written on Dave Hitz's blog about what they really do. NetApp helps large organizations manage all of the data - information flowing around.
