Poll: Who will acquire Data Domain?

Things have been quiet on the EMC/NetAppData Domain for the last couple of weeks.  DDUP’s stock price remains above NetApp’s current purchase offer ($30) which suggests that people think the bids will increase.  I also found some seemingly contradictory articles.  The Motley Fool suggests that EMC should back out of bidding for Data Domain because they cannot win.  Storage Biz-News.com indicates that EMC has upped their offer to match NetApp which suggests the EMC thinks they can win.  At the very least, we know that EMC has extended their current offer.

As previously posted, I believe EMC will acquire Data Domain. Who do you think will be the acquirer?

  • EMC: They are committed and will win at any cost. (65%, 17 Votes)
  • NetApp: DDUP's board favors NetApp. (27%, 7 Votes)
  • A mysterious company C. (8%, 2 Votes)
  • Nobody, DDUP will remain independent. (0%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 26

  1. Your DS-2 product seems to be like Data Domain box so maybe who ever does not buy Data Domain may buy Sepaton?

    This DS-2 machine is Fiber Channel only? Can I do any other connections?

  2. Claire,

    Thank you for your comment. SEPATON’s VTL solutions are designed for performance and the DS2 can ingest data at up to 300 MB/sec. The unit currently supports 2 Gb Fibre Channel and we are looking at adding other connection options.
