“Customer response to the announcement has been very positive and we are pleased to now be able to fully demonstrate the benefits of the combined technology capabilities of LSI and SandForce,” said Jeff Richardson, executive vice president and chief operating officer, LSI. “Together, we offer the broadest storage technology portfolio in the industry, and are well positioned to help customers manage their growth and the explosive growth in data across enterprises and the cloud.”
Flash storage processors provide the intelligence required to deliver the performance and low-latency benefits of flash storage in enterprise and client applications. SandForce’s products combine reliability and endurance with the power efficiency of flash-based storage solutions that are required for the broader adoption of flash in mission-critical applications.
The SandForce team joins LSI as the newly formed Flash Components Division, headed by Michael Raam, formerly president and CEO of SandForce. Approximately 190 SandForce employees have joined the LSI team with the close of the transaction.
