What an exciting time to be in the Storage and Data Center Infrastructure market!!! It is so competitive with new technologies popping up everyday that companies are rampantly partnering up for better future strategic positioning. If you thought that Symantec selling Veritas for 8 Billon (Click here for article) was a big deal, that looks like small potatoes compared to Michael Dell’s purchase of EMC. Who saw that 67 Billion dollar acquisition coming? (Click here for article ). Dell and EMC are both hugely successful companies in their own right, and the combined firm will be a major force to be reckoned with. It will be very interesting to hear about how things develop with this mega-merger. As we receive additional feedback from people in the marketplace, we will post future updates.
The Dell/EMC acquisition isn’t the only one that has happened in the past month, just the most expensive… Perhaps everyone is getting ready to crush it in 2016. IBM just bought Cleversafe (Click here for article).Western Digital bought SanDisk for 19 Billion (Click here for article). Thales Group bought Vormetric for 400 Million (Click here for article).
Who do you think will be the next corporate marriage????!!!!!
