ArkeiaArkeia Software, the Carlsbadistan (and Paris, France) based data backup software company has been acquired by digital storage giant Western Digital for an undisclosed amount, according to a story in the Orange County Business Journal.

Western Digital will fold Arkeia into its small- and medium-business unit, and expects the addition to boost its portfolio with products designed for the “larger SMB customers,” according to Western Digital’s Executive Vice President Jim Welsh. . . Arkeia provides data backup software, as well as other services such as data de-duplication. Its products are used on more than 150 platforms, including Windows and Linux.

We’re guessing everyone is very happy about the sale. But that would, of course, just be a guess.
