Syncplicity Acquired by EMC
Computer science alumnus Ondrej Hrebicek (CS ’03) co-founded and is chief technology officer of Syncplicity, which recently was acquired by EMC Corporation for an undisclosed sum. Syncplicity provides enterprise customers with cloud-based sync and share capabilities through its Virtual Private Cloud. Acquiring Syncplicity will further enable EMC to provide ways to give users access to clouds while maintaining governance of security.
Before helping to start Syncplicity, Hrebicek, who is originally from Prague, Czech Republic, was at Microsoft, where he contributed to multiple releases of the Windows Communication Foundation and holds patents related to his innovative work in Web services.
