Apple Acunu

On 25 Mar, Apple had acquired NoSQL database startup FoundationDB in what's thought to be a move to bolster the company's own cloud-based services.

Just a day after Apple acquired database company FoundationDB, Apple revealed the previously acquired U.K.-based data analytics company Acunu.

Acunu creates technology that provides analytics on databases, and its technology can be used in conjunction with other tools, improving their performance. Bloomberg notes the company's tools work well with free Cassandra databases, which Apple runs on several thousand computers.

It's likely that the Acunu acquisition will be used for iCloud and its various services, like iTunes Radio, the upcoming reimagined Beats Music streaming service and Apple's over-the-air TV service.

Both acquisition indicates that Apple is placing more emphasis on the development of solid data infrastructure to help provide services to its legions of global consumers beyond iPhones and iPads.

Letz watch this interesting tech wars !!!
