PROVIDENCE – Desktop virtualization company GreenBytes has been acquired by Oracle Corp. for an undisclosed sum as the business software giant looks to advance its ZFS file-system technology with GreenBytes’ domain expertise in deduplication, replication and virtualization.

GreenBytes vIO virtual storage application, which was named the Desktop Virtualization Product of the Year at the 2013 Storage, Virtualization and Cloud Awards, features patented zero-latency inline deduplication technology to remove redundant data, reducing desktop-virtualization storage needs by up to 98 percent, according to GreenBytes.

The GreenBytes IO Offload Engine and vIO virtual storage technology will be integrated into future Oracle releases, and independent sales and support of GreenBytes products will be discontinued, Oracle said in a news release. Existing GreenBytes customers will transition to the Oracle ZFS storage products that best meet their needs.

“Integrating GreenBytes’ unique ZFS-based functionality into Oracle’s superior ZFS-based technology will further enhance Oracle’s technological differentiation and leadership in ZFS file systems, and will ultimately result in additional functionality for and attractiveness of the Oracle Solaris and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance products,” stated the Oracle release.

Following the acquisition, which closed June 2, GreenBytes will be integrated into Oracle’s storage business under the ZFS file system team. Deborah Hellinger, a spokeswoman for Oracle, declined to comment on whether the GreenBytes headquarters will be relocated out of Providence or whether any staffing or leadership changes will be made at the company.
