NetApp last week announced that it has completed the acquisition of Bycast, a privately held company headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, under terms of the definitive agreement announced on April 7, 2010.
Bycast extends NetApp’s leadership position in unified storage by adding an object-based storage offering to manage petabyte-scale, globally distributed repositories of images, video, and records for enterprises and service providers. Bycast also expands NetApp’s position in key markets such as healthcare, digital media, Web 2.0, and cloud services providers.
Bycast’s former headquarters is now the NetApp Vancouver Technology Center, responsible for existing Bycast products and future product development.
Additional details can be found in our press release announcing the acquisition on April 7, 2010.
