- Oracle (ORCL) is buying GreenBytes, a developer of software that optimizes the storage performance/efficiency of PC virtualization solutions (allows PC resources to be hosted on/managed by a server). Terms are undisclosed.
- Oracle says it plans to integrate GreenBytes' technology with its ZFS storage appliances (part of its engineered systems lineup). As it is, GreenBytes' software supports the open-source ZFS file system (obtained by Oracle through the Sun Microsystems deal).
- The Register's Chris Mellor observes GreenBytes' software includes a "highly rated" deduplication engine that could be used by Oracle's appliances. He speculates (given GreenBytes' past funding activity) Oracle may have paid ~$150M-$185M for the startup.
