Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA) announced the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Netreon, Inc., a privately held developer of storage area network (SAN) software. No purchase price was disclosed in the all- cash transaction. The acquisition represents the next step in delivering CA’s vision of Managing Storage Without Boundaries. With the addition of Netreon’s SANexec Designer, CA now offers solutions for managing the entire storage life cycle – enabling customers to optimize returns on corporate storage technology investments.

SANexec Designer will be integrated into CA’s BrightStor family of storage management solutions and will be branded as BrightStor SAN Designer. SANs have become increasingly popular for companies seeking to consolidate data storage in order to reduce costs, optimize efficiency, and ensure full protection of critical corporate information assets. The Netreon technology significantly reduces the time required to plan, deploy, change and document new and existing SANs.

BrightStor SAN Designer will be available through CA’s worldwide sales force and authorized channel partners. For additional information, please visit
