Oracle acquires GreenBytes

Last week Oracle has quietly announced to have reached an agreement for the acquisition of GreenBytes, a company founded in 2007 and specialized in storage deduplication, replication and virtualization.

GreenBytes, developed with funding from investors such Battery Ventures and Generation Investment Management, can claim active partnerships with vendors like Cisco, Dell, HP and IBM and its products, based on an improved version of ZFS technology (also acquired by Oracle back in 2010) have also become Citrix Ready and VMware certified.

The transaction, the terms of which haven’t been disclosed, is expected to close in the first half of 2014  and we are all looking forward to see how Oracle will use GreenBytes’ technologies that are especially suited to the VDI field.
