Cisco Buys WHIPTAIL To Strengthen Its Solid State Memory Systems

Cisco intents to acquire privately held WHIPTAIL, a developer of high performance solid state memory systems.

Based in Whippany, N.J., WHIPTAIL will strengthen Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS) strategy and enhance application performance by integrating scalable solid state memory into the UCS's fabric computing architecture.

With the acquisition of WHIPTAIL Cisco is evolving the UCS architecture by integrating data acceleration capability into the compute layer. Integrating WHIPTAIL's memory systems with UCS at a hardware and manageability level will simplify Cisco's customers' data center environments by delivering the required performance in a fraction of the data center floor space with unified management for provisioning and administration.

"We are focused on providing a converged infrastructure including compute, network and high performance solid state that will help address our customers' requirements for next-generation computing environments," said Paul Perez, vice president and general manager, Cisco Computing Systems Product Group. "As we continue to innovate our unified platform, WHIPTAIL will help realize our vision of scalable persistent memory which is integrated into the server, available as a fabric resource and managed as a globally shared pool."

Upon completion of the acquisition, WHIPTAIL employees will be integrated into the Computing Systems Product Group led by Paul Perez, vice president and general manager. Under the terms of the agreement, Cisco will pay approximately $415 million in cash and retention-based incentives in exchange for all shares of WHIPTAIL. The acquisition of WHIPTAIL is expected to be complete in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, subject to customary closing conditions.
