French Kalray Finalized Acquisition of Arcapix From UK

Provider of SDS and data management solutions for data-intensive applications

Kalray SA entered into exclusive negotiations for the acquisition of 100% of the shares of Arcapix Holdings Ltd., provider of SDS and data management solutions for data-intensive applications.

Arcapix is a UK headquartered company that offers high-performance storage and data management solutions for intensive and critical data.

It was founded in 2013 by Ben Leaver and Barry Evans. It operates under the brands pixitmedia and arcastream, that serve the demanding storage verticals of M&E, AI, life sciences, engineering and scientific Research. It has developed a high-performance software storage solution. It combines flash, disk, tape, and cloud storage into a multi-protocol, unified system.



Kalray provides high compute, low power, programmable acceleration cards based on its patented family of data processors (DPU). Last year, it announced the commercial availability of its storage acceleration card, the K200-LP, that targets the data-intensive storage market. It recently announced the availability of a NVME storage array, the Flashbox.

Eric Baissus, president and CEO, Kalray, said: “I am delighted at the prospect of this acquisition that will accelerate our go-to-market and strengthen our key position in the data-intensive storage market. It is perfectly aligned with Kalray’s development strategy and ambition, complimenting our products, team, expertise and markets. With this acquisition, we would gain new clients and strategic partners to propel our business forward.”

Ben Leaver, Arcapix’ co-founder and CEO, commented: “We are excited at the prospect of joining the Kalray family. We have come to trust and respect its leadership, and we have high hopes about its ambitious vision and breakthrough technology. We believe that together we can build and deliver superior products with compelling value to our customers. As data increasingly shapes the modern business, managing it becomes ever more critical and faces growing demands for performance, scalability, and flexibility.”
