updated 10:15 pm EST, Wed February 15, 2012

Acquisition said to benefit enterprise products

SanDisk has announced that it has moved to acquire FlashSoft, a software company that specializes in flash storage for enterprise products. The latter company's software is geared for Windows, Linux and VMware platforms, helping to improve application performance by implementing SSD-based data caching that operates alongside standard disk drives.

The technology is claimed to allow businesses to improve performance with smaller and cheaper storage configurations, while also expanding scalability to operate more virtual machines per server. The software will be used in conjunction with SanDisk's SAS, PCIe and SATA enterprise products.

SanDisk suggests it will offer FlashSoft's products as standalone software, or packaged with enterprise hardware.
