In addition to investing in our core business, we are
making highly selective strategic investments to augment
and strengthen our capabilities to address the future
needs of new and existing customers. These actions
include the pending acquisition of Virident and the
acquisitions of sTec and VeloBit, which collectively will
enhance the value of our offerings in enterprise solid
state storage, a fast growing, rapidly changing and highly
strategic space, and the acquisition of Arkeia Software,
which provides network backup software and appliances
to our SMB business.
We are excited about the long-term outlook for storage
and our increasingly strategic position within the
vast digital data ecosystem, and we will continue to
explore ways to enhance our value. We are a market
and customer driven company, focused on growth
and innovation. I am confident that this approach will
differentiate us as one of the world's leading technology
companies in the years ahead.
