Dell is apparently hoping to reach out into the enterprise storage space and has placed a bid to acquire clustered storage vendor Exanet based out of Israel.
"The transaction has not yet been approved by the Israel court, so we won't speculate on its completion or timing," a Dell spokesman said in response to a Computerworld inquiry.
The bid included an offer to purchase Exanet's assets, which are mostly patents, and other intellectual property. The offer must be court approved through a Chapter 7 liquidation in Israel.
Exanet also has offices in New York, Europe, and Japan.
