Adaptec to buy network attached storage specialist

Storage and networks are becoming ever more entwined. The news that Adaptec is to buy Snap Alliance, a network attached storage specialist, makes sense and is part of a forward looking strategy.
Both companies say that the merging of the two organisations will be an additive process, after all, Snap Alliance is not a direct competitor: it has traditionally focused its efforts on the channel and systems business, and has a big presence in vertical sectors. Adaptec, by contrast, sells mainly to OEMs.
