Dell Acquires Storage Deduplication Vendor Ocarina Networks

Tuesday Jul 20th 2010 by Staff

The move will help Dell compete with other storage vendors which have strong deduplication offerings.

Channel Insider: Dell has announced that it will close a deal to purchase Ocarina Networks for an undisclosed sum before the end of the month. The acquisition improves Dell's storage portfolio with deduplication technology and will help it compete with HP, IBM, Symantec, EMC and NetApp.

"Combining Ocarina’s capability with Dell’s leading storage portfolio, we plan to move the Ocarina solution well beyond what you’ve seen with other deduplication offerings to include ‘end-to-end’ optimization. This brings deduplication to not only primary storage, but also to key storage workflows including backup, replication, migration and tiering,” said Ocarina Networks CEO Murli Thirumale.
