Egenera Lays Off 87

Egenera, a Marlborough, MA-based, maker of data center management software, told employees yesterday that it will respond to a global sales slowdown by cutting 87 people from its staff, including 30 to 35 employees in Marlborough, according to a report in the Boston Globe. The company said its sales staff would shrink by 40 percent as Egenera shifts some marketing responsibilities to hardware partners such as Dell.
