EMC has said it has acquired Montreal-based Watch4net, a privately-held provider of enterprise and carrier-class performance management software, in an all-cash transaction. Watch4net provides real-time, historical and projected visibility into network, data centre and cloud infrastructure performance. The firm has worked closely with EMC over the last seven years. Watch4net leverages EMC's topology awareness, instrumentation and management console.
Michel Foix, Watch4net CEO, and the Watch4net team will report to Jay Mastaj, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EMC Infrastructure Management Group.
