Cluster team will be joining Rocket Software’s global organisation to become Rocket iCluster
Rocket Software has closed the acquisition of the iCluster business from IBM where iCluster offers software for High Availability/Disaster Recovery (HA/DR) for IBM i.
Under the acquisition, the iCluster team will be joining Rocket Software’s global organisation of more than 900 employees and become Rocket iCluster, within the Rocket Storage, Networks and Compliance group.
In addition, Rocket Software will be working to establish direct relationships with iCluster partners, and introduce them to Rocket Software.
Rocket is also working closely with IBM to ensure that customer support needs are managed and support delivery is unaffected.
Rocket Software president and chief executive officer Andy Youniss said Rocket Software believes that iCluster’s HA/DR offerings are a perfect complement to Rocket’s storage solutions and will help address the business continuity needs of our customers.
"In addition, developing and providing solutions for IBM i is a core focus area for Rocket, where we have multiple brands on this platform. We plan to continue investing in Rocket iCluster to deliver new features and functionality and will work to further enhance this solution for HA/DR on IBM i. Most importantly, we want to assure our new Rocket iCluster business partners and customers that Rocket Software is committed to helping you achieve success with this solution," said Youniss.
