One month ago I had opportunity to play with old filer R200 from NetApp company. NetApp Inc., formerly Network Appliance Inc., is a well known American computer storage and data management company headquartered in Sunnyvale, California. NetApp competes in the data-storage devices industry.

I plan to create a couple of articles about this theme here. Look into archive of my Blog. You will find additional posts here soon. If you find it interesting - let me know about in comments below.
