The acquisition follows HP's purchases of AppIQ and Peregrine Systems, and is aimed at boosting the company’s server, storage and software offering.

HP said that OuterBay technology would enable IT organisations to improve database performance by up to 80%.

It would also allow HP to expand its offerings for customers deploying Oracle, SQLServer, and Sybase databases and enterprise applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite, SAP and PeopleSoft.

"OuterBay builds on HP's enterprise portfolio to help companies get more from their mission-critical database environments," said Bob Schultz, senior vice president and general manager, StorageWorks division, HP.

 "Sixty percent of our HP Integrity server customers are running Oracle applications and databases today, making this a key capability for our existing customers."
