IBM completes acquisition of Texas Memory Systems

1 Oct 2012 Armonk - IBM has completed its acquisition of Texas Memory Systems (TMS), a privately held company based in Houston, Texas. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

IBM announced on August 16, 2012, that it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire TMS, a developer of high-performance flash memory solutions.

Founded in 1978, TMS designs and sells solid state memory solutions as the RamSan family of shared rackmount systems and Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) cards. The products are designed to help companies improve system performance and reduce such critical issues in the data centre as server sprawl, power consumption, cooling, and floor space requirements. Leveraging such solutions can help organisations save money, improve performance and invest more in innovation.

"Flash technology is a game changer for our clients and IBM is committed to delivering industry-leading Flash-optimized capabilities as a cornerstone of our Smarter Storage strategy", stated Brian Truskowski, General Manager, IBM System Storage and Networking. "The TMS solutions extend our broad portfolio of Flash-optimized storage arrays and flash optimization software, providing our clients unmatched value."

IDC estimates the amount of solid state storage solutions being shipped into the enterprise will grow significantly, reaching nearly 3 exabytes by 2016.

TMS will be integrated into IBM Systems and Technology Group.
