I do not believe much needs to be said on this acquisition. We all know who EMC is and what it is famous for. ScaleIO last year (2012) came out of the stealth mode and recently got acquired by EMC for something like $200m to $300m depending on the source. Looks like portion of the team came from XtremIO that was couple of years acquired by EMC (see the pattern?).
Quick recap: ScaleIO has a product called Elastic Converged Storage (ECS) which is a virtual appliance that turns a server’s direct-attached storage (DAS) and turns it into a shared SAN.
How it all fits in into the EMC Flash portfolio? Zahid Hussain explains.
