RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC (AP) -- Data management provider NetApp Inc. says it's creating another 460 jobs in North Carolina for a new high-performance computer center and paying the new employees six-figure average salaries.

Gov. Bev Perdue announced Monday the California-based company's decision to invest $75 million and expand within the Wake County portion of Research Triangle Park.

An economic panel agreed just before Perdue's announcement to award incentives to NetApp that could give the company almost $12 million in tax breaks over 10 years if they meet investment and job creation goals. NetApp will have to retain the nearly 1,500 jobs it already has in North Carolina.

The new jobs are expected over four years and will pay on average more than $100,000, plus benefits. The Wake County average is less than half that amount.
