Open Letter to ScaleIO Customers and Partners


From Boaz Palgi, CEO

It is with great pleasure that I share with you that EMC has signed a definitive agreement to acquire ScaleIO. We are excited to accelerate our product leadership in this fast-growing server-based storage market.

ScaleIO delivers an innovative and unique software-only approach for server-based storage—that provides unprecedented elasticity, scalability, and performance. As part of the EMC® Xtrem® Flash Family, our powerful technology will be integral to changing the economics, scale and performance of storage.

We are humbled by the rapid adoption of ScaleIO’s ECS by enterprise customers and service providers alike, which has established ScaleIO as the leader in the server-based storage market in just two years. And this is just the beginning. Working together with the professionals at EMC, and leveraging EMC’s best-of-breed technology, will enable us to deliver customers reliable, elastic, high-performance server-based storage solutions, today.

To my team: Thank you for your commitment to, and confidence in ScaleIO. I have great pride in the no-nonsense manner in which we have put ScaleIO on the map, with limited resources and in a highly competitive market. Not only have we engineered and brought to market a robust product, but we'vealso gained the confidence of our customers—and drawn attention from the industry’s largest players.

Most importantly, to our customers and partners: As part of EMC, we continue to be committed to your success. We are dedicated to maintaining and increasing the quality of innovation, support, and service that you have come to expect from ScaleIO--and that you already know and love from EMC.
