<p>SYDNEY, Australia – 11 May, 2009 – NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) announced today that it has been named to the Global Green 100 List for 2009 by the Uptime Institute, a leading research-based think-tank and corporate advisory on the business and technology issues related to critical computing environment reliability and energy efficiency. The Global Green 100 List’s purpose is to identify and provide global recognition for those companies that demonstrate an integral commitment to and progress toward reducing their energy consumption and carbon footprint.</p>
<p>The list of 100 includes exemplary FORTUNE 500 and InformationWeek 500 organisations with a demonstrated board-level policy and governance commitment to increasing energy efficiency and reducing the carbon footprint of their enterprise IT and data centre operations.
