July 17, 2009 - HP and IBRIX today announced a definitive agreement for HP to acquire IBRIX, a provider of enterprise-class file serving software solutions. IBRIX software offerings cover data protection, high-availability features and data management services for massive amounts of user-generated data. According to the companies, IBRIX solutions scale to tens of petabytes, aiding control of exploding data growth and helping address application performance challenges in demanding environments. The data management capability of IBRIX’s Fusion software suite allows customers to seamlessly add capacity as their data or performance needs grow.

Founded in 2000, and an HP partner for three years, IBRIX is privately held and headquartered in Billerica, Massachusetts. It has 53 employees and more than 175 enterprise customers worldwide, including AOL, Caterpillar, Disney, DreamWorks, JPMorgan Chase, Pixar and Random House. IBRIX also partners with Dell and EMC. Adding IBRIX’s software to HP’s portfolio furthers the company’s position in the emerging market of scale-out and high-performance computing storage, cloud storage, and fixed content archiving.
