SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 30, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sigma Solutions announced today that Senior Systems Engineer Chris Norris received the award for Outstanding Contribution by a NetApp Tech Team Partner. Winners of this award were nominated by NetApp field teams and executives. The award was presented during NetApp Insight Americas 2012, held Nov. 5-8 in Las Vegas, and Norris was invited to attend a luncheon with NetApp executives and other honorees.

"We are very proud that Chris has been recognized by NetApp for his outstanding achievements," said James Smith, Director of Solutions Engineering, Sigma Solutions. "Chris has helped numerous customers take advantage of NetApp's storage technologies in their data centers. This award recognizes his demonstrated expertise in NetApp solutions."

Norris also wrote and delivered a technical presentation during Insight Americas 2012, and will be doing the same during Insight APAC, which will be held Dec. 11-13 in Macau. The presentation is a competitive analysis of the auto-tiering technologies of five storage vendors: NetApp, Hitachi Data Systems, EMC, HP and Dell.

"I am honored to have received this award and to present during NetApp's global technical conferences," Norris said. "One thing that has always drawn me to NetApp is its unified storage approach. I can put different types of applications and use any of the storage protocols on one system without having to go through a lot of complexity and bolt together a bunch of different components. NetApp's ease of management is another selling point. Sigma's focus is always to provide the very best solution to meet each customer's specific needs, and in many situations that means NetApp."
