DataCenter Technologies Has Been Aquired By Veritas

Not all the news from Veritas Software Inc. is happening here at the company’s user show. A key, new development in Veritas’ data protection strategy actually originates from a small town in Belgium, SearchStorage.com has learned.
Veritas has acquired Gent, Belgium-based DataCenter Technologies Inc. (DCT), a privately held maker of data reduction and capacity optimization software for disk-based backup. DCT also has offices in Foster City, Calif.

Veritas confirmed the acquisition but declined to go into detail. “Whether we buy technology or build it inhouse, it’s all still our technology,” said Jeremy Burton, executive vice president of the data management group at Veritas. Financial details were not available. DataCenter Technologies did not return calls for comment.
