DDN completes IntelliFlash acquisition

DDN has completed its acquisition of the IntelliFlash business from Western Digital Corp.

The acquisition of IntelliFlash expands DDN’s portfolio of intelligent infrastructure offerings for the enterprise with best-in-class NVMe flash solutions and highly versatile hybrid storage arrays, backed by an industry leading AI-enabled, predictive analytics platform. With IntelliFlash, DDN extends its market leadership in end-to-end data management solutions and enables enterprises to solve their most demanding data center requirements across AI, analytics, IoT, multicloud, and virtualized environments.

“IntelliFlash adds the most powerful and versatile NVMe, hybrid flash and predictive analytics platform in the industry to DDN’s market leading enterprise storage offering for virtualized environments, IoT and data at scale requirements,” said Alex Bouzari, CEO and co-founder, DDN. “Our customers can truly enhance the value and simplify the management of their data in the multicloud with insight, ease of use and flexibility across the broadest range of platforms, applications and environments.”

The acquisition of IntelliFlash adds more than 1,700 customers and partners, seven years of flash storage innovation, a strong patent portfolio and a great engineering and global go-to-market team to DDN’s Enterprise Division. With today's enterprise and cloud-scale data initiatives, it is essential for IT infrastructures to deliver ease of management, high performance, flexibility and stability to meet and exceed digital modernization demands. DDN’s enterprise business unit now combines IntelliFlash, Tintri’s market leading virtualized storage offerings and Nextenta’s IoT and telco offerings, thereby fully addressing the widest range of data management enterprise needs.

“I am excited to have the IntelliFlash organization join the DDN Enterprise family. Both the people, as well as the technology, are a natural fit for our organization and now provide us a broader set of offerings that will further enhance our intelligent infrastructure portfolio for enterprise customers,” said Tom Ellery, general manager and senior vice president of field operations, Tintri by DDN. “As we combine the organization, we are eager to engage with the entire IntelliFlash community of customers and partners. The opportunity to become more intimate with their business challenges and share our vision of how intelligent infrastructure is fundamentally changing all operational aspects for the large enterprise is incredibly invigorating for the entire company.”
