Sun Microsystems today completed the acquisition of Procom Technology's network attached storage (Nas) intellectual property rights, in addition to taking on the "majority" of Procom's employees related to Nas product development.
Through a previous software licensing agreement with Sun, Procom's technology is already embedded and currently shipping within the Sun StorEdge 5000 range of Nas appliances.
With the close of the acquisition, Sun said that it will be able to build Nas and next-generation file-based storage systems more quickly and cost-effectively.
The Procom transaction, combined with the recent announcement that Sun has signed a definitive agreement to acquire StorageTek, signifies the strategic importance of data management to the Unix giant, according to Jonathan Schwartz, president and chief operating officer at Sun.
