NEW DELHI, INDIA: NetApp and the Sauber F1 Team have extended their partnership after three-year collaboration as a technical partner.


In 2007 the Sauber F1 team and NetApp started working together, building up their partnership in early 2012 when NetApp became technical partner of the Sauber F1 team. This year NetApp provided the Sauber F1 Team with an upgrade to a system of the FAS8000 series, which delivers significantly higher performance and an increased storage capacity.

NetApp provides the Sauber F1 Team storage infrastructure for all IT services involving engineering, business and administration at its headquarter in Hinwil, as well during the Formula One weekends around the globe.

“The quality and quantity of the new system doubled our storage capacity as well as tripled our data access performance. We are pleased to continue our successful collaboration and look forward to strengthening our long-term partnership even more,” said Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal, Sauber F1 Team.

The NetApp provides Sauber F1 with real-time access to data to enable the team and drivers to make splitsecond strategy calls and gain the advantage over their competitors, while also transmitting decisions that enhance the car’s design.
