HP to Buy LeftHand

Arthur Cole

Consolidation around iSCSI SAN solutions continues for the major vendors.

 

HP has announced it will buy LefHand Networks for a cool $360 million in an all-cash deal. The acquisition brings the SAN/iQ system into the HP fold where it is expected to shore up the company's presence in mid-market installations.

 

The deal comes less than a year after Dell took over EqualLogic, probably LeftHand's chief rival in the market.

 

Once the deal is completed early next year, it shouldn't take long for HP to integrate the SAN/iQ and other LeftHand products into the fold. The company is already certified for both the ProLiant and BladeSystem lines, as well as the ProCurve networking system and the Insight Control management software.
