Datalink Extends Eastern US Position
In a move intended to shore up its position in the eastern and southeastern United States, Datalink, a Eden Prairie, Minn.-based solution provider, acquired StraTech last October for approximately $20 million. The North Carolina-based company formerly known as Strategic Technologies is a substantial expansion play for Datalink, representing about 400 customers and $65 million in product and service revenue with minimal overlap. The two companies also share key vendor alliances with companies such as Hitachi Data Systems, NetApp and Symantec. The combined company plans to focus on optimizing enterprise data centers and IT infrastructure.
