Hitachi to Resell DataCore?

Invests in the company and is expected to be next in line to resell the startup's software

DataCore Software Corp. is racking up resellers at a clip these days. Word has it that Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), Hitachis storage division in the U.S., will become the next company to resell the firm's SANsymphony software.

HDS was unable to confirm this, but spokespeople said an announcement from Hitachi headquarters in Japan is imminent.

Meantime, Datacore announced last week that IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM) would be reselling its software. Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE: HWP), Fujitsu Ltd. (KLS: FUJI.KL), and Fujitsu Software Technology Corp. (Softek) are already doing so (see IBM Signs Sneaky DataCore Deal and IBM Resells DataCore).

Why all the interest?

Basically, DataCore’s SANsymphony software converts islands of dissimilar storage into a networked storage pool, making it easier to manage devices from different vendors.
