LSI Acquires SandForce

On October 26 LSI announced its acquisition of leading SSD controller maker SandForce.  The privately-held firm has made significant strides in the development of high-performance controllers that have gained great popularity through a string of impressive benchmark results in the online reviewer community.

Meanwhile, LSI has made good inroads into the PCIe SSD market with its WarpDrive, a single board made up of multiple SandForce-controlled SATA SSDs connected to the PCIe interface by a n LSI RAID chip.

With this acquisition SandForce will profit through LSI’s larger marketing and development resources, and LSI will benefit by becoming a major force in the SATA SSD market.

Objective Analysis has issued an Alert titled LSI Acquires SandForce that gives a deeper analysis of the acquisition.
