Micron bags UK virtualisation vendor Virtensys

Micron says PCIe technology will allow SSD capacity sharing

Article comments

Micron Technology on Friday announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Virtensys Ltd., a UK-based provider of PCIe-sharing products. No financial details on the deal were released.

Micron plans to use Virtensys' PCIe virtualisation technology to allow datacentres to share local solid-state drive (SSDs) storage across multiple servers.

For example, Virtensys' VIO-4000 Series PCIe Sharing appliances can virtualise network and storage connectivity to a rack of servers, providing up to 80Gbps of Ethernet uplink bandwidth, 32 Gbps of Fibre Channel bandwidth, and/or up to 16TB of local storage connectivity to up to 16 servers.

Edward Doller, Micron's chief memory systems architect, said the acquisition would enable "a combination of enterprise technology solutions that have the opportunity to virtualise SSD storage on the path to a more flexible and dynamic datacentre ."

Micron will continue to support their deployment of I/O virtualisation products. We have been working closely with Virtensys to include our PCIe SSD [P320] into their appliance and plan on rolling that solution out later this year," Doller said.

Micron said it expects the transaction to close by the end of the month.
