Hitachi buys Archivas.

by jesse in ,

That's right. My awesome employer, a storage startup called Archivas is being purchased by Hitachi Data Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi Limited.

This is of course, awesome new for us as a company - but on a personal level this purchase shows a belief and commitment on the part of Hitachi when it comes to the product and technology I've put blood and sweat and tears into for the past 3 years.

When I go to pyCon this month - I get to go as an HDS employee. This is truly awesome.
