NetApp’s Crafty Acquisition of Akorri Will Be Boon to Users — and Not Just NetApp Users
Last week, NetApp of Sunnyvale, California and Akorri Networks, Inc., of Littleton, Massachusetts announced a definitive agreement for NetApp to acquire Akorri for an undisclosed dollar amount in an all cash transaction. The deal is expected to close before the end of NetApp’s fourth quarter (April), assuming all parties agree and any regulatory concerns are addressed.
Certainly, these are factoids of immediate interest to Wall Street, competitors, and most industry publications.

What will be better? Are there any downsides to customers and prospects and can they be ameliorated? Read this white paper to learn more about the acquisition of Akorri Networks, Inc. by NetApp.
