Mellanox Technologies Ltd strengthens its position in providing end-to-end connectivity systems with the acquisition of Voltaire Ltd. The transaction is said to be worth about $218 million.

The deal will expands Mellanox's software and product offerings in the growing worldwide datacenter server and storage markets.

Voltaire is a provider of scale-out computing fabrics for datacenters, high performance computing and cloud environments. Voltaire�s family of server and storage fabric switches and advanced management software improve performance of mission-critical applications, increase efficiency and reduce costs through infrastructure consolidation and lower power consumption.

In related news, Oracle Inc. recently made a strategic investment in the supplier of InfiniBand-based chip technology. Database giant Oracle has acquired 10.2 percent of Mellanox's ordinary shares in the open market. Oracle claims it has no plan or intention to make an unsolicited and unfriendly offer to take over Mellanox.
