Hewlett-Packard broadened its plans in the NAS market this week when the company announced it has inked a deal to acquire OEM partner and clustered file system vendor PolyServe. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.

HP entered into an OEM partnership with PolyServe in 2005 and has been selling PolyServe’s technology with the StorageWorks EFS Clustered Gateway, a midrange NAS gateway comprised of a ProLiant Storage Server and Clustered File System software and the StorageWorks EVA-File Services (EVA FS), a virtualization package that serves both block and file data.

HP has made inroads in the entry-level NAS market over the past few years, but the company has its sights set on bigger customers. Bob Schultz, senior vice president and general manager of HP’s StorageWorks Division, says the acquisition provides a strong entry point for HP into the growing enterprise NAS market and will also allow the company to extend its NAS technology to blade servers.
