Microsoft announced on Friday that it has acquired InMage, a provider of Backup (BU) and Disaster Recovery (DR) technology for Enterprises and Managed Service Providers (MSPs).
According to Takeshi Numoto, Corporate Vice President, Cloud and Enterprise Marketing, Microsoft:
This acquisition will accelerate our strategy to provide hybrid cloud business continuity solutions for any customer IT environment, be it Windows or Linux, physical or virtualized on Hyper-V, VMware or others. This will make Azure the ideal destination for disaster recovery for virtually every enterprise server in the world. As VMware customers explore their options to permanently migrate their applications to the cloud, this will also provide a great onramp.
With the completion of this acquisition, we are now working to integrate the InMage Scout technology into our Azure Site Recovery service in order to give customers a simple, cost-effective way to ensure business continuity with the power and scale of the Azure global cloud. The company already announced its plan to enable data migration to Azure with Scout. Existing customers can continue to use the InMage products and services they trust and, moving forward, customers will acquire Scout through Azure Site Recovery. We will also continue to work with InMage service provider partners, as well as new partners, to give our mutual customers a range of solution options.
InMage states: "We have always been focused on providing innovative on-premises and cloud-based business continuity solutions to our customers and partners. Now, as part of the Microsoft family, we have the amazing opportunity to accelerate our innovation and provide even greater value with cloud-connected solutions based on Microsoft Azure."
