Xyratex acquires storage startup firm ClusterStor

Develop and support file system technology

By CBR Staff Writer

Xyratex, a provider of enterprise-class data storage subsystems and storage process technology, has acquired ClusterStor, a storage startup in stealth mode based in Boulder, Colorado.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Xyratex said that Peter Braam, inventor of the Lustre file system in the early 2000’s, and Peter Bojanic have joined the company to help lead the company’s Lustre initiative.

Through this acquisition, Xyratex has reunited the core architectural and development team of Lustre of ClusterStor, a startup Braam formed to further develop and support file system technology.

Xyratex senior vice president of software Peter Braam said he is excited about joining Xyratex because it will enable him to continue the vision of Lustre.

"With both the financial and technical resources available through Xyratex, we’ll be able to ensure that Lustre continues to evolve in High Performance Computing," Braam said.
