Sun Microsystems has completed the acquisition of Clustra Systems, for an undisclosed fee. The move is intended to bolster Sun’s iPlanet application sever software.
The web is already mission-critical for many organizations, and with the acquisition of Clustra, we’re taking an important step to dramatically extend the availability and scalability of Sun’s platform for services on demand, said Mark Tolliver, Executive Vice President and General Manager, iPlanet Products. Clustra’s always-on technology will play a key role within the Sun ONE solution by extending the reliability and availability of the iPlanet Application Server. Clustra brings world-class software people and technology to Sun, and we are excited to have them join us.
This technology is a perfect match to help Sun achieve its three big bets: massive scalability, continuous availability, and an integrated software stack said Gary Ebersole, Senior Director at Sun Microsystems and former CEO of Clustra. We are very pleased to be joining Sun and are looking forward to driving innovation in the area of continuous system uptime for the company.
Clustra Systems was privately held, and headquartered in Oakland, California.
