<p>Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP), a leading provider of enterprise network storage solutions, has announced its support for SAP NetWeaver(tm) '04, SAP's integration and application platform.

<p>NetApp provides a fully integrated backup, restore and disaster recovery storage infrastructure for SAP NetWeaver and mySAP Business Suite.
