LSI Logic Corp. announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire StoreAge Networking Technologies Ltd for approximately Rs.231.05 crore ($50 million) in cash. StoreAge is a privately held company based in Nesher, Israel with US offices in Irvine, California, which provides SAN storage management and multi-tiered, data protection software for the enterprise.

"With the rapid growth in data storage capacity, enterprise customers are seeking enhanced levels of data protection, highly effective storage management tools and reduced cost of ownership," said Phil Bullinger, senior vice president and general manager, Engenio Storage Group, LSI. "Through the acquisition of StoreAge, we anticipate offering our OEM and channel customers a richer set of products and features that fully address these important end user requirements."
