EMC buys assets of network accelerator Asankya Latest acquisition to help EMC's cloud storage push.
By  Manda Banda Published  August 2, 2011

Storage solutions mainstay EMC has quietly snapped up some assets of Asankya, a developer of application acceleration services and solutions which can be applied to cloud storage solutions.

The storage solutions vendor declined to comment about the acquisition, which was first reported by Inside Market Data, other than to confirm through a company spokesperson that it had acquired ‘some of the assets' of Asankya and has hired some of its employees.

The Atlanta-based Asankya first hit the public stage in January 2008 at the Demo Conference where it introduced its ‘Hypermesh Network' for providing transport of high-quality real-time and two-way traffic over IP networks regardless of existing disconnects between CDNs and P2P solutions.

Asankya's website has been taken down after the acquisition. However, according to the company's most recent statements, Asankya is the developer of the technology behind the RAPIDnet Application Delivery Network (ADN), which is used by providers of storage-as-a-service, online file servers, virtual desktops, private enterprise applications, and by agencies of the US government.

At Asankya's LinkedIn profile, which is still available on-line, the company describes itself as a provider of application acceleration services and solutions to cloud storage, application providers, and other key partners.
