QLogic Furthers iSCSI with Acquisition of Little Mountain Group

QLogic Corp. announced it has acquired the outstanding common stock of Little Mountain Group Inc. for cash and stock. The transaction is said to be worth $30 million over a four year period.

LMG, founded in 1999, develops standards-based technology for high-speed SANs. LMG is currently developing iSCSI – SCSI over IP – technology for use in adapters and storage controllers to enable a new generation of Ethernet SANs. The LMG iSCSI solution includes hardware-based TCP/IP acceleration, which had broad application possibilities in a number of networking spaces.

LMG will be operated as a wholly-owned subsidiary of QLogic.

“The addition of the LMG technology and their engineering team to QLogic is an important step in bringing rapidly developing new Ethernet-based storage architectures to our markets,” said HK Desai, chairman, CEO, and president of QLogic. – Isaac Slepner
