Last month, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) had announced plans to acquire SimpliVity, a software-defined, hyper-converged infrastructure provider. The deal was closed today for $650 million giving both companies the official green light to begin integration plans.

Ric Lewis, Senior Vice President, HPE said:

There are many things about this acquisition that provide real customer value, but the things I’m most excited about are the strength of the people joining HPE and the roadmap that we will deliver for customers as a combined company.

HPE says that the deal will bring together its infrastructure, automation and cloud management software with SimpliVity’s software-defined data management platform.

Lewis added:

HPE will offer the SimpliVity OmniStack software qualified for ProLiant DL380 servers.

Customers may order this new offering today with a targeted delivery date in May.
