Techworld's publisher IDG has teamed with NetApp to offer readers the chance to win £1 million in hardware software and services.


NetApp is one of the world’s biggest storage and data management companies. It believes that storage virtualisation can save organisations 50 percent or more of the cost of traditional storage and it wants the chance to prove it.


The winner of the competition will work together with NetApp to establish a baseline of their organisation’s current infrastructure. Then, based on documented best practices, NetApp promises to deploy hardware and software to improve operations.


Finally, the company will work with a third-party analyst to measure and validate the efficiency gains.


This is a great opportunity for one lucky organisation to get a state of the art infrastructure overhaul at no cost, so enter now. ComputerworldUK.com will be on hand to record the transformation during its progress.


Whether or not you win, NetApp is promising entrants can learn how to cut the amount of storage you use and with it, costs.  The competition is open to IT departments that haven’t bought NetApp gear in the last two years, and who are not currently in the process of buying from NetApp.


Details of the competition and terms and conditions are available here.
