Seagate to Acquire an Email Archiving Vendor?

On Dec 6, Seagate Technology announced an agreement to purchase MetaLINCS.

MetaLINCS is the third company that Seagate has purchased in the archive, recovery, and e-discovery marketplace. The others are:

  • EVault, an online backup and recovery provider
  • ActionFront, a provider of recovery and migration services

With the addition of the MetaLINCS e-discovery platform, Seagate Services can offer enterprises one-stop shopping for archive, recovery, and e-discovery services.

The only piece that Seagate requires to complete its archiving suite of products and services is an archiving platform for email and documents. There are many small email archive companies available, so perhaps more acquisitions are forthcoming from Seagate.
