Iron Mountain Guzzles Mimosa

Off-site storage vendor Iron Mountain now has a way to store data on-site. The company just spent $112 million for archiving vendor Mimosa Systems.

Mimosa is one of the things I love about this job. I first met Mimosa execs, including CEO T.M. Ravi, when Redmond magazine was just getting going and Mimosa was a feisty startup. The company made a lot of noise and got a lot of attention for its NearPoint tool, which is now a line of NearPoint tools.

Look for Mimosa, its products and sales efforts to be blended into Iron Mountain's.
