Privately-held Arkeia was founded in 1996 and has 29 employees at the time of acquisition, which was in December 2012. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Arkeia will be integrated into WD's Branded Products SMB unit and the products initially will retain the Arkeia name. WD will support all Arkeia customers on current maintenance and plans to retain both Arkeia's software and appliance product lines.

WD also announced the release of Arkeia's Network Backup v10.0. v10.0, which entered beta in June of last year. The new release enables hybrid cloud backups via the ability to "seed and feed" both backup and recovery by using USB drives to move large amounts of data between backup servers.
