Western Digital buys further into solid state storage technology with Tegile Systems, maker of hybrid flash storage arrays for virtualised server and virtual desktop environments.

WD TegileFinancial details of the deals have not been disclosed.

Founded in 2012, Teile is best known for IntelliFlash, a comprehensive storage platform able to deliver storage at flash memory speeds. It also brings WD a list of 1700 customers, as well as an expanded product portfolio for its Data Centre Systems (DCS) unit.

"By combining Tegile's innovative storage system software with Western Digital's global scale and combination of components and systems, we expect DCS to capture a sizable share of flash array demand," the company says. "Western Digital is focused on the systems business and this is a significant step forward in advancing our long-term strategy."

The acquisition comes just days after WD announced it is buying Upthere, a provider of cloud-based storage for photos, videos, documents and music. According to WD, the deal provides both enteprise and consumer customers with more means for critical data storage and management.
