5 year OEM of BlueArc’s Titan and Mercury product lines, HDS (Hitachi Data Systems) will be acquiring BlueArc.  This of course will be a great combination of companies, and I imagine will be a very accelerated ramp up as HDS already has everything in place to absorb BlueArc in a great way.  HDS isn’t one to buy companies.  This will be among one few and one of the largest acquisitions for HDS.  Exciting times for BlueArc and HDS, scary times for NetApp I would imagine.
