The Fragile State of the Midwest’s Public Universities - The Atlantic
Trump’s cuts would affect all research universities, but not equally. The problem is more pronounced at public universities than private ones, and especially at public institutions in the Midwest, which have historically conducted some of the nation’s most important research. These schools are desperately needed to diversify economies that rely disproportionately on manufacturing and agriculture and lack the wealthy private institutions that fuel the knowledge industries found in Silicon Valley or along Boston’s 128/I-95 corridor. Yet many flagship Midwestern research universities are being weakened by deep state budget cuts. Threats to pensions (in Illinois) and tenure (in Wisconsin) portend an exodus of faculty and their all-important research funding, and have already resulted in a frenzy of poaching by better-funded and higher-paying private institutions, industry, and international competitors.

# Portfolio Synergy

The Data Domain portfolio brings a complementary offering to NetApp, expanding NetApp’s reach in the market for heterogeneous disk-based backup. Today, NetApp’s heterogeneous backup offering (with its VTL product line) provides installations with disk-based solutions to augment their tape backup infrastructure. Data Domain’s portfolio will extend NetApp’s ability to compete in the increasing number of installations wanting to minimize their reliance on tape. The Data Domain acquisition increases NetApp’s ability to capitalize on the growth of disk-based backup adoption, a trend accelerated by the economics of deduplication.

# Deal initiation from

Goldman Sachs & Co., or Goldman Sachs, had served as co-managing underwriters in Data Domain’s initial public offering in June 2007. In November 2008, prior to the engagement of Goldman Sachs by NetApp, a representative of Goldman Sachs arranged for a meeting between Messrs.

Georgens and Gomo regarding a potential proposal from NetApp to acquire Data Domain. Mr. Slootman proposed hiring Qatalyst Partners LP, or Qatalyst, as Data Domain’s financial advisor to advise the Data Domain board of directors regarding the evaluation of a potential NetApp proposal and other strategic alternatives for Data Domain. Mr. Slootman noted that Goldman Sachs had been previously engaged by NetApp to serve as its financial advisor. The Data Domain board of directors approved the engagement of Qatalyst as Data Domain’s financial advisor.

First Evidence That Online Dating Is Changing the Nature of Society - MIT Technology Review
