Violin® Systems LLC completes acquisition of X-IO Storage, developer of the popular Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) flash and hybrid storage array product lines. Violin Systems acquires X-IO’s products and engineering team, as well as retains X-IO’s world-class service process and organization to manage the existing customer installed base of more than 8,000 X-IO arrays effective immediately, November 8, 2018.

Violin Systems will add X-IO ISE arrays to its flash storage product lineup, meeting the needs of a greater variety of customers and providing the industry with a wide range of solutions spanning from terabytes to multiple petabytes with enterprise-class performance, features, and reliability. Ultimately Violin Systems intends to integrate its own extreme performance technology with X-IO price-performance value to deliver transformational economics for organizations of any size.

Violin’s extreme performance platform enables a dramatic infrastructure cost savings and cost avoidance of 40 percent or more by reducing the number of servers and cores needed. Consolidated hardware in the data center means less power and cooling requirements, less management and a reduced need for the number of software and application licenses. With dramatic improvement in application performance, there is an equally dramatic improvement in the experience of the applications’ end users, resulting in improved customer satisfaction. Combined with Violin’s performance advantages, customers are able to realize dramatic competitive advantages while simultaneously saving money.
