Storage buy for IBM

Analysis and reporting vendor bought

IBM has acquired Novus, a provider of consulting and software for storage analysis and reporting.

It has collaborated with Novus on services engagements since 2003.

"Novus' assets and methodologies provide a standardised, repeatable approach for assessing and optimising storage in multivendor environments," according to an IBM statement. "Its storage analysis and reporting software, tools and asset-based delivery model will enhance IBM's ability to produce services engagement results in reduced time."

Novus' software includes Storage Enterprise Resource Planner, which provides a view of storage use at the business level, to identify unnecessary duplication of storage and enable accurate chargeback and capacity planning, IBM says.
