IBM completes acquisition of virtualization-management technology provider CSL International

What? IBM confirms it has acquired CSL International.
Why it matters: According to IBM, this acquisition strengthens the consolidation and cloud capabilities of IBM zEnterprise technology, by offering simplified set up and management of the virtualization environment.

On August 30, 2013, IBM announced it had completed the acquisition of CSL International, an Israel-based leading provider of virtualization management technology for its zEnterprise system. Financial terms were not disclosed.

zEnterprise enables clients to host the workloads of thousands of commodity servers on a single system, thus achieving simplification, improved security and cost reduction.

CSL-Wave software allows clients to monitor and manage their z/VM and Linux on System z environments, by means of a drag-and-drop interface. This software will become part of the IBM zEnterprise portfolio in early 2014.
