Today Mellanox announced that they have signed a definitive agreement to acquire 100 percent of Voltaire’s outstanding ordinary shares. The combined businesses currently have approximately 700 employees and achieved revenues of $217 million for the twelve months ended Sept. 30, 2010.
The combination of Mellanox and Voltaire will create a leading provider of connectivity solutions for our customers by leveraging the complementary strengths of our companies. Together, we believe the combined company will be a stronger business partner and system solutions provider, delivering customers a comprehensive range of end-to-end connectivity solutions,” said Eyal Waldman, president, chairman and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. “We welcome the great talent from Voltaire and look forward to completing the integration of our employees to create a superior combined company.”
At insideHPC, we believe this is a great combination. The technical strengths of both companies are a recipe for formidable competition against other IB vendors such as QLogic.
