JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Amazon (AMZN.D) has bought an Israeli storage technology startup, E8, Storage facilities, a source familiar with the deal said on Wednesday.
The team at E8 Storage, which provides flash storage for the enterprise, software-defined, cloud-based service, along with Amazon Web Services-development center in Tel Aviv, the source added.
Amazon, Amazon Web Services, and E8, Storage, declined to comment.
The source said that the appreciation of the E8-Storage facility is “significantly less” than the $50-$60 million previously, due to Israel’s Globes news site.
