Hewlett Packard Enterprise acquires SGI for $275 million | VentureBeat | Enterprise | by Jordan Novet

Tbd if HPE will next acquire what's left of Netscape from Verizon/AOL (although some of the Netscape server products ended up at Oracle, via iPlanet)

"Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which split from HP last year, today announced that it has acquired SGI, a company that makes servers, storage, and software for high-performance computing, for $275 million in cash and debt.

SGI (originally known as Silicon Graphics) was cofounded in 1981 by Jim Clark, who later cofounded Netscape with Marc Andreessen. Following a years-long decline, and after being de-listed from the New York Stock Exchange, SGI filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2009. That year it was acquired by Rackable Systems, which later adopted the SGI branding. SGI’s former campus in Mountain View, California, is now the site of the Googleplex."
