SASI was aware of Njini through our storage market research and coverage of file area networking. Njini was at an inflection point and a Njini investor introduced SASI to the CEO of Njini. SASI identified, selected and approached a strategic set of acquirers who could leverage Njini’s core solution set. Communicating the core value proposition, larger vision and possible end states for storage management were critical to moving the process forward.
