On January 12, 2015, Citrix announced that it completed its acquisition of Sanbolic, an innovator and leader in workload-oriented storage virtualization technologies. Sanbolic technology enables customers to software-define storage to optimize the delivery of application-specific workloads, from any media type-improving storage load balancing, application availability and delivering the highest-performance end-user experience.
The acquisition of this robust set of workload-oriented infrastructure technologies, combined with its market-leading XenDesktop, XenApp and XenMobile products, enables Citrix to develop a range of differentiated solutions. These solutions will dramatically improve the economics and reduce the complexity of Windows application delivery and virtual desktop infrastructure deployments.
WilmerHale represented Sanbolic in this transaction, with a team led by Partners Ed Pease and Mick Bain that included Partners Amy Null, Barry Hurewitz, Jeffrey Johnson and William Caporizzo; Special Counsel Jeffrey Ayer; Counsel Ciara Baker; Senior Associates Leslie Harrelson and Livingston Miller; Associates Avery Reaves, Julie Fogarty and Ritu Gupta; and Paralegal Cynthia Sullivan.
