EMC to acquire ScaleIO
Posted on 12-Jul-2013 08:45. | Tags Filed under: News.



EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire privately-held ScaleIO, a pioneer in server-side storage software. The acquisition will further strengthen the EMC Flash portfolio by combining ScaleIO's highly scalable server software with PCIe Flash cards, such as EMC XtremSF, in Enterprise Private Cloud and Service Provider environments.

Upon closing, ScaleIO will operate within the EMC Flash Product Division. ScaleIO and its Elastic Converged Storage (ECS) software will become an integral part of the EMC XtremSW Suite, which EMC introduced earlier this year with the goal of enabling customers to better utilize and manage server-based PCIe Flash storage. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The all-cash transaction is not expected to have a material impact to EMC GAAP or non-GAAP EPS for the full 2013 fiscal year.

ScaleIO takes a software-only approach to creating a virtual pool of server-based storage by logically combining SSDs, PCIe Flash cards, HDDs—or any combination of these devices. ScaleIO provides support for both virtualized and non-virtualized environments and scales from tens to thousands of servers.

EMC is committed to enabling customers to deploy Flash across their entire server and storage infrastructures. The EMC Xtrem Family of products deliver server-side hardware and software (through XtremSF PCIe cards and XtremSW Suite) and all-Flash arrays (through XtremIO).
