Apple made another big purchase. The Cupertino-based tech giant acquired a London-based data analytics firm called Acunu, a real-time analytics platform. It also boasted high-velocity ingests.

It was reported that the iPhone maker did an “acqi-hire” of Acunu’s most important employees about two years ago, although the actual time frame in which that happened is unknown. From the latter half of 2013 to early 2014, seven of Acunu’s employees transferred to Apple. This shift includes the company’s founding CEO, Tim Moreton. He now works as an iCloud Manager in San Francisco.

Last year, chief product officer Andrew Byde started his job as senior software engineer. Unlike Moreton, he works at the London headquarters. Other notable Acunu employees include Richard Low, Sam Overton and Nicolas Favre-Felix. Overton works with distributed systems for Apple. His work also involves the development of available distributed systems for structure storage.
