Feb 12, 2013

Just weeks after we reported a shift in strategyat VMware, the virtualization giant has announced its intent to acquire Virsto Software, a provider ofstorage performance optimization software. VMware is refocussing its efforts to what it knows best: infrastructure. The company had intended to branch out to provide products at every layer of the entire software stack, including cloud-based applications. But withcompetition from scrappy startups and legacy vendors, VMware is concentrating its energies on the virtualized data center. John Gilmartin, vice president ofVMware's storage and availability unit, said the company intends to extend the "benefits of virtualization to every domain of the datacenter — compute, network, and storage.” VMware has made a number of strategic acquisitions to bolster its technology in each of these domains, including the high-profile purchase of Nicira for $1.26 billion. The buy-up, which the company announced in a blog post today, is expected to close at the end of the quarter. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
