Behind the Scenes: Episode 87 – The NetApp A-Team visits RTP!

Welcome to the Episode 87, part of the continuing series called “Behind the Scenes of the NetApp Tech ONTAP Podcast.”


This week on the podcast, we recap the annual NetApp A-Team meeting with NetApp product owners and executives on campus. This meeting is called the ETL (Extract, Transform, Load). In this meeting, NetApp leadership presents to the A-Team about roadmap items and the A-Team gives their candid feedback to leadership.

The A-Team has grown quite a bit since they started – this year, we had nearly 30 people onsite!


We did a podcast with them and I tried to get each of them on. If you’ve ever seen the podcast studio, it’s quite literally a storage closet, so fitting 10-15 sweaty IT dudes in there at a time was… interesting.

The end result was a lengthy (nearly 2 hours!) – but great – recap of the 2-3 day event.

If you’re interested in joining the NetApp A-Team, have a look at NetApp United!
