HP announced on Friday that it has finalised a deal to acquire file server specialist IBRIX.
The company said that the deal will allow it to further advance its enterprise storage operation. IBRIX develops network storage systems, specialising in large-scale applications such as user-generated content services.
HP hopes to integrate the IBRIX software into its high-performance storage and cloud computing platforms. The software will be bundled with HP Storage Area Network, ProLiant, BladeSystem and ProCurve hardware offerings.
"Customers need highly scalable storage solutions that efficiently and cost-effectively manage massive amounts of information," said Jeff Hausman, vice president of unified storage for HP's StorageWorks division.
"This acquisition expands our portfolio to better support the needs of this market segment."
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. HP said that it hopes to finalise the transaction within 30 days.
