Dear Customers and Partners,
On July 30, 2012, Oracle announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Xsigo Systems, a leading provider of network virtualization technology that simplifies cloud infrastructure and operations by allowing customers to dynamically and flexibly connect any server to any network and storage. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and approvals and is expected to close in the fall of 2012. Until the transaction closes, Oracle and Xsigo will continue to operate independently, and it is business as usual.
Companies are looking to deploy virtual servers to reduce data center costs and meet the agility and performance demands of cloud environments. Virtualized servers require more bandwidth and connections to external network and storage resources, which can lead to higher connectivity costs and complex data center management.
Xsigo's software-defined network products help customers increase asset utilization and application performance while reducing costs by delivering compute, storage and network resources that can be dynamically reallocated on demand. Xsigo complements Oracle's software, server, storage, and network product portfolio, and the combination is expected to deliver the most complete set of virtualization capabilities for cloud environments.
More information about the proposed combination of Oracle and Xsigo can be found at oracle.com/xsigo
We appreciate your continued support.
Oracle is currently reviewing the existing Xsigo product roadmap and will be providing guidance to customers in accordance with Oracle's standard product communication policies. Any resulting features and timing of release of such features as determined by Oracle's review of Xsigo's product roadmap are at the sole discretion of Oracle. All product roadmap information, whether communicated by Xsigo or by Oracle, does not represent a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.
