Storage giant NetApp has ended its 2011 financial year on a high, with full-year revenue up 30 per cent on last year.
The vendor posted a full-year GAAP net income of $673.1m (£413m), up from $400.4m the previous year, and revenue in excess of $5bn.
More than a third of the firm's full-year revenue was generated during its fourth quarter, where NetApp's turnover rose from $1.172bn in Q4 2010 to $1.428bn in 2011.
The company's Q4 GAAP net income also increased from $145.1m to $160.6m during the same period.
Tom Georgens, president and chief executive of NetApp, said the results coincide with the company making its biggest-ever market share gains.
"We achieved the largest market share gains in our history and closed a record number of million-dollar deals, demonstrating our momentum in the market," he explained.
"Enterprise customers increasingly choose NetApp as their vendor of choice for storage virtualisation and cloud deployments," he added.
