StorageTek this week acquired Storability Inc., a Southborough, Mass.-based storage management software company.
Under terms of the agreement, StorageTek will purchase all intellectual property, software license agreements, customer contracts and other assets of Storability. StorageTek anticipates that approximately 70 Storability employees will join its team.
Storability's flagship software, Global Storage Manager (GSM), enables customers to visualize and optimize their multi-vendor enterprise data storage environment, providing a centralized view of all infrastructure elements, including online and nearline storage, network fabric and switches, databases and backup applications. Version 0.4 of GSM adds comprehensive business analytics that transform data into relevant, actionable information for every level of the organization, StorageTek said.
StorageTek and Storability have worked together for more than two years. StorageTek was one of Storability's leading resellers. In July 2002, StorageTek acquired Storability's Storage Operations Center (SOC) and launched its Remote Managed Storage service offering.
