HPE to acquire SDN specialist Plexxi

Tuesday 15 May 2018 | 15:30 CET | News

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has reached an agreement to acquire Plexxi, a provider of software-defined data fabric networking technology, for an undisclosed amount. Founded in 2010, Plexxi specialises in enabling data centre modernisation and hybrid cloud with its software-defined data fabric. HPE said it intended to integrate Plexxi technology into its hyperconverged solutions offering following the acquisition of SimpliVity last year.

It said Plexxi’s technology would also serve to extend its composable infrastructure portfolio, called HPE Synergy. “Composable infrastructure… is a new category of infrastructure that delivers fluid pools of storage and compute resources that can be composed and recomposed as business needs dictate,” explained HPE, adding that the acquisition is expected to close in its third fiscal quarter, ending 31 July 2018.
