David Turner

Hitachi Vantara’s federal business has assumed control of some of Brocade Communications Systems’ (Nasdaq: BRCD) federal service maintenance contracts and other assets under a definitive agreement signed in June.

Hitachi Vantara Federal said Friday the agreement’s completion would provide the company access to Brocade’s storage area networking, campus/edge networking and data center networking support maintenance contracts as well as nearly 24 technical engineers.

David Turner, president and CEO of Hitachi Vantara Federal, said the asset acquisition marks the company’s another step in transitioning into a full-service data provider that aims to meet customers’ internet of things, big data and analytics requirements.

“Adding Brocade’s networking component to our infrastructure, software and analytics portfolio strengthens our [internet protocol]-based networking and software-defined architecture capabilities that we can now offer to our federal customers,” Turner added.

The completion of the asset transfer transaction coincided with the finalization of Broadcom’s (Nasdaq: AVGO) acquisition of Brocade and came a month after Hitachi Vantara Federal’s rebranding effort.
