IBM acquires CSL International

IBM acquires CSL International 

CSL International’s CSL-WAVE software lets businesses monitor and manage their z/VM and Linux z environments with a user friendly interface. IT managers can drag and drop icons to create, discover, visualize and connect virtual servers. CSL-WAVE makes it easier for IT departments to allocate their limited resources because staff members no longer need to spend valuable time dealing with virtual servers.

IBM executives expressed enthusiasm about the acquisition. With the acquisition of CSL International, IBM expands its cloud virtualization capabilities, making it even easier for clients to take advantage of Linux on System z,” said Greg Lotko, IBM business line executive, System z. Lotko added that CSL International will enable IBM to meet the demand for running Linux on System z. “As clients create smarter computing environments, they are looking for ways to manage IT costs and complexity without sacrificing security or the ability to scale. The response by clients to the advantages of Linux on System z have been tremendous, with the shipped capacity nearly doubling in 1Q13 year to year,” he added. 

Pending regulatory reviews and customary closing conditions, the acquisition is expected to close in the third quarter of 2013.
