TeraCloud, a Bellevue storage analytics company, today announced that it bought Bellevue e-mail archive analytics company Estorian and assumed its name.
They had pre-existing connections — Estorian was started by TeraCloud’s founder, Ron Higgins.
The merger highlights Estorian’s LookingGlass product, which helps companies using Microsoft Exchange archive and retrieve e-mail. Higgins came up with the product in 2005 while working on a project for the U.S. Department of Justice.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but a spokeswoman said Estorian’s three employees joined the combined company.
