Seagate Software is to pay $10 million for Kodak's Eastman Software storage management group, to expand its NT offerings.
The cash deal will bring with it a hierarchical storage management product codeveloped by Eastman and Microsoft for NT 5.0. This will be integrated with Seagate's back-up technology, which will also be included in NT 5.0.
"Data migration will play a critical role in the future of Windows NT environments," said Seagate president Terry Cunningham.
Seagate already OEMs the Eastman product under the name Back-up Exec Storage Migrator. It will also take over Eastman's Open/Storage for NT and AvailHSM for Netware offerings.
