Dell Buys Server Virtualization Startup RNA Networks

Dell announced on Monday that it has acquired RNA Networks, a developer of memory virtualization technology.

The acquisition was closed on Thursday. Dell spokesman Jess Blackburn said RNA’s employees will be staying with Dell, but he declined to disclose the transaction price.

"We think they have an excellent memory virtualization technology, which we intend to incorporate into future product offerings," Blackburn said.

Founded in 2006, the Portland, Ore.-based RNA has about 20 employees. Its memory virtualization technology allows groups of servers to share memory to handle large software applications, such as databases.
