Greenplum Buys Israeli Outfit

Terms were not disclosed but Globes thinks it was between $10 million and $20 million

EMC's Greenplum Division, which is about to move into EMC and VMware's new Pivotal Initiative operation, just bought six-year-old More IT Resources Ltd, a privately held Israeli developer whose MoreVRP database control and monitoring platform will be "immediately" integrated with its Big Data analytics widgetry.

Terms were not disclosed but Globes thinks it was between $10 million and $20 million.

Greenplum says More's tools are monitoring billions of finance, telco, Internet and pharmaceutical transactions.

It says MoreVRP takes a revolutionary approach to database and system resource management by optimizing resource allocation in real-time at the OS transaction level to perfect IT performance. It's supposed to be the only solution that can leverage the knowledge it collects to proactively reallocate resources across all active transactions in accordance with business priorities via dynamic I/O and CPU resource allocation.

It increases productivity and cuts TCO, capital and operating expenses and simplifies highly concurrent environments by letting more users run queries simultaneously and shift resources dynamically between the various consumers based on business needs.
