Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this podcast, I interview Mike Gustafson and Bjorn Andersson of BlueArc. The company was recently acquired by Hitachi Data Systems.


  • BlueArc already did a lot of OEM business with Hitachi Data Systems. What do you think was the most compelling reason why they decided to acquire BlueArc?
  • I always thought of HDS as an enterprise play, with limited traction in the HPC space. Will this change now that BlueArc is part of the company?
  • What does the global reach mean in terms of growth potential for the BlueArc business?
  • Big Data Analytics seems to be on everyone’s mind in the IT industry these days. How will BlueArc help HDS’s efforts to become a leader in Big Data?
  • Have you been part of an acquisition before? What do you think the greatest challenge will be as you move to integrate the two companies?
