Hitachi Data Systems has struck a deal to acquire cloud hosting services company oXya in a move aimed at growing HDS’ managed cloud offerings.
HDS said Tuesday the oXya purchase is scheduled to complete by the end of March, pending customary closing terms.
OXya works with enterprise customers to help them implement SAP products and manage information technology systems in a private or hybrid cloud environment.
Hicham Abdessamad, executive vice president for global services at HDS, said the company aims to enable its unified computing technology to run on the SAP HANA in-memory cloud platform through the acquisition.
OXya, led by Frederic de Belloy, would operate as an HDS subsidiary and report to Abdessamad.
