Yesterday, Dave Hitz discovered that Network Appliance made the Fortune 1000 list for the first time:

“NetApp just made the Fortune 1000 list for the first time, coming in at #929 with $1,598m in revenue for calendar 2005.

Since we have such a high growth rate, I’ve always found it more useful, when doing market analysis, to look at our annualized run rate, rather than our trailing full year. In our last quarter, we did $537m, which annualizes to $2,148m. That would have taken us up to #772. 

What fun! Can you tell that I’m proud of my baby?”
