Deployed in thousands of data centers across healthcare, energy,
manufacturing, financial services, academia and research industries,
DDN's data storage offerings have long been the solution of choice for
organizations with demanding on-premise and hybrid cloud needs.

DDN's recent acquisition of Intel's Lustre file system business added
the world's most advanced file system technology to DDN's already
substantial flash, analytics and cloud product portfolio. DDN also
entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Tintri on July 18, 2018,
whereby DDN has offered to acquire substantially all the assets of
Tintri, a company offering enterprise cloud infrastructure built on a
public-cloud like web services architecture and RESTful APIs.
