Did not find something really new made in 2018.

StorCentric, the newly formed customer centric storage solutions company will be acquiring Drobo, the preferred storage solution for prosumer and SMB customers and Nexsan, a global leader in enterprise storage solutions. With these acquisitions, StorCentric will provide a robust portfolio of storage solutions with a broad and feature rich product line. This will enable high performance, secure, and scalable solutions for a multitude of workflows and workloads. Both brands will remain intact as independent divisions under StorCentric.

Can be reason.
