The acquisition will give HP a foothold in the high-growth enterprise network attached storage market and will allow the company to extend this technology to blades, the fastest growing segment of the storage market.
PolyServe is headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon and has 117 employees and more than 500 customers. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The firm's software already works with industry standard hardware such as HP ProLiant servers and HP's portfolio of storage arrays to consolidate and virtualise network attached storage in Linux or Windows environments.
"Our two-year relationship with PolyServe has convinced us that its technology will help accelerate HP's growth and complement our HP StorageWorks, ProLiant and BladeSystem businesses," said Bob Schultz, senior vice president and general manager at HP's StorageWorks division.
