Fujitsu Softek Acquires Vixel’s SAN Management Business

Fujitsu Software Technology Corporation , a provider of storage management software, has acquired Vixel’s SAN Management software business, including SAN Insite. Under the terms of the agreement, Fujitsu Softek has purchased all of Vixel’s SAN Management technology intellectual property and key development team resources.

On the heels of the company’s acquisition of Datacore’s virtualization source code, Fujitsu Softek said it now owns the IP for its complete suite of storage software products. It said it can now supply comprehensive data storage and service level management solutions that are hardware-vendor and OS-platform independent.

Fujitsu Softek said its SANView product is for enterprises with an existing SAN or with plans to implement a SAN who need to visualize, monitor and manage their SAN. Softek SANView, which is SAN fabric management software, provides a way to view, monitor and manage SAN performance by automatically discovering the devices and drawing the topology of a customer’s SAN.

“We’ve built a world-class SAN management software product and are delighted that our OEM partner, Fujitsu Softek, has now taken the extra step to acquire it as a key element of their storage software business,” said Jim McCluney, president and CEO of Vixel.

Fujitsu Softek said it will provide customer maintenance support for Vixel’s existing SAN InSite customer base and allow Vixel to retain rights to the software to service existing customers. Completion of the transaction is expected to occur this month.
