Egenera Boosts Cloud Management Roster With Fort Technologies Buy
Egenera, a vendor of management and automation software for converged infrastructure environments, acquired Fort Technologies, a Dublin, Ireland-based developer of cloud life-cycle software, for an undisclosed sum. The deal was a logical one since Egenera already uses Fort Technologies technology in its PAN Cloud Director product through an OEM agreement, Pete Manca, CEO of Egenera, told CRN. Egenera was the sole OEM of Fort Technologies' cloud management software, Manca said.
"It was a gem of a company," he said. "We originally stumbled on it via another reseller and signed the OEM deal with them about a year ago. We didn't want that hanging out there without us owning it."
