Microsoft Reaches Agreement to Acquire StorSimple - The Sky Is the Limit Now
StorSimple has defined the frontier on how cloud can empower enterprise IT. We have done so by pioneering the integration of on-premises and cloud storage in a single solution that delivers the functions of primary storage, backup, archival and disaster recovery with automated data management. We are excited at the opportunity to continue our work with Microsoft to bring this innovation to their Cloud OS vision.
Looking back over the last three and half years, after long nights and days of innovation, and early customer deployments followed by mainstream enterprise adoption, it became clear that the combination of StorSimple and Windows Azure delivers a best in class cloud-integrated storage solution that enables customers to use public cloud services as a seamless extension of their IT infrastructure. The result is that a wide range of customers from non-profit organizations to Fortune 500 companies and government agencies have adopted this solution at an amazing rate.
On behalf of the StorSimple team and our investors (Ignition Partners, Index Ventures, Mayfield Fund and Redpoint Ventures), we are thrilled about the scale and business agility that we’ll now be able to deliver for our customers and partners.
