Dave Raffo Dave Raffo Profile: Dave Raffo

Hewlett-Packard today acquired its clustered file system partner Ibrix, which is best known for selling its Fusion software through partners to studios that make animated movies.

HP did not disclose financial terms of the deal. Its press release said the transaction will likely close within 30 days, and the Ibrix business will become part of the StorageWorks division in HP’s Technology Solutions Group.

HP has resold Ibrix software with its SAN systems as well as ProLiant and BladeSystem servers. DreamWorks has used a combination of Fusion and HP hardware for rendering of its animated movies. Ibrix also counts Pixar as a customer, and has sales partnerships with EMC, Dell and IBM.

According to HP’s press release, Ibrix’s software “solidifies the company’s leadership in the emerging market of scale-out and high-performance computing storage, cloud storage, and fixed content archiving.”

We’ll have an update on SearchStorage following HP’s webinar today.
