EMC announced on Thursday it has acquired XtremIO, the Israeli flash storage architecture firm, for an undisclosed amount.

EMC first entered the flash storage market in 2008 when it integrated it into its enterprise storage arrays; since then, the company has ramped up that business while developing systems and software to fill out its portfolio. Last year, EMC shipped more than 24 petabytes of Flash drive capacity to customers.

"We fully expect XtremIO technology, once introduced to market, to have a tremendous impact on our customer's ability to leverage the unique advantages of all-Flash storage," EMC Information Infrastructure Products COO Pat Gelsinger said.
