"This acquisition will bring together two Quebec based technology companies with complementary product lines, and extend our leadership in healthcare supply chains where more than 30% of our business is currently coming from," said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS. "Logi-D's technology reduces the time clinical staff spend managing their inventory, leading to proven reduction in costs with improved patient care and outcomes. We remain the only supply chain solution built to address the specific needs of the healthcare industry, and will continue to expand our offerings both organically and through acquisitions."

"Being a part of the top solution for healthcare supply chains opens new avenues for us to expand our product footprint. With our resources now combined, I look forward to joining the TECSYS team and providing our customers the best solution available."

The company will acquire Logi-D's shares for $2,950,000 in cash, subject to adjustment, and $100,000 in common shares of TECSYS.

Completion of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval of the TSX.

Management anticipates that the deal will close May 31, 2014 and plans to pay for the cash component from its existing cash balance. Logi-D had revenue of $5,572,000 in its fiscal year ended June 30th, 2013. Logi-D, which is based in Laval, Quebec, has approximately 27 employees.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall.
