NetApp layoffs insane
NetApp is no longer the best place to work. Their latest layoffs include a number of long term senior CLOUD strategists and Enterprise Architects who were hired to help provide the company with direction and focus on Cloud.
One can only assume, that the entrenched incumbent sales leaders have stuck their heads in the sand, preferring to continue to sell in outdated modes, via storage based solution sales, rather than helping their partners and their channel design and build truly competitive Cloud services. Their ignorance of Service Strategy, Design, and the basic tenets of ITIL and ISTM will well serve their competition well, and white box storage behind well designed Cloud Services based on Open Source will continue to eat their lunch.
