EMC has acquired solid-state firm XtremIO in a bid to boost its Flash storage offerings.
The company said that the deal would bring additional storage and performance options for its networked storage appliances and platforms. XtremIO, which is based in Israel, develops Flash storage architectures as well as solid-state storage arrays.
EMC said that the addition of XtremIO would benefit its current Flash-based storage lines with an emphasis on networked storage appliances. Additionally, the company said that the deal would be put to use in the company's virtualisation lines.
Further details on how XtremIO will be integrated with EMC and how the company will incorporate the acquisotion into its lines are expected to be announced later this month at the company's annual EMC World conference in Las Vegas.
"XtremIO brings to EMC amazing technology with a fantastic team that's captured praise from early-view customers and many of the industry's foremost thinkers," said EMC information and infrastructure products vice president and chief operating officer Pat Gelsinger.
"We fully expect XtremIO technology, once introduced to market, to have a tremendous impact on our customer's ability to leverage the unique advantages of all-Flash storage across many of their most demanding applications."
While terms of the deal were not disclosed, EMC said that the transaction would be all-cash and would not impact its annual financial report.
