Peter O'Connell, Network Appliance's Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand today claimed his company has displaced EMC as Sensis' incumbent storage supplier.
O'Connell told a press event that Sensis conducted a TCO study of NetApp vs. EMC which overwhelmingly found NetApp offered the company better bang for buck and has since begun migration NetApp equipment.
O'Connell said he expects this will be the first of many similar stories in the coming year as "NetApp expects to surpass EMC's market share in Australia in the next 18-24 months" and "will significantly hurt EMC this year."
"Once companies take their finger out of the dyke and buy their first NetApp product, they do more and more with us quickly after that."
