Western Digital has announced that it has acquired I/O acceleration software maker Velobit. The Velobit software will be integrated into Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (HGST), a wholly owned subsidiary of Western Digital. The software "dramatically accelerates applications and increases server density by enabling higher I/O performance, lower latency, and more efficient usage of processor and storage resources". It works by adding a transparent acceleration layer to storage systems using SSDs.
