Black Box Corporation Enables New Classes of KVM Products with Cloudium Systems Acquisition


Black Box Corporation has acquired a small, privately held Irish firm, Cloudium Systems, which specializes in the development of desktop virtualization hardware and software.

According to the announcement, Cloudium's development team will become part of the Black Box team.  And Black Box said it would use the newly acquired Cloudium assets to strengthen its position in the High-Performance kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) and KVM-over-IP market place.  

Cloudium was founded in 2009 and has been delivering products such as cloudRDP Software, a performance optimized stack to build clients that support the remote desktop protocol and Microsoft’s RemoteFX; cloudAccel semiconductor for desktop virtualization and rich media remoting applications; and cloudZero VCA2000 Client, a solution based on the cloudAccel semiconductor device.

"Black Box's product growth strategy is to expand our core assets with software and services that offer a complete solution to current and emerging target markets," said Josh Whitney, VP Technology Product Solutions & International Services.

Whitney went on to say that Black Box would leverage Cloudium’s development capabilities and existing patents to deliver mission critical KVM systems.  Adding, "We plan to deploy their AV/IT Enterprise Management platform to differentiate and round out our portfolio of Control Room and Data Visualization solutions."

No additional details about the transaction were released.
