Microsoft Acquires StorSimple
Our relationships define our trajectory. Often its luck, but we place odds on investing more heavily in the relationships that inspire us, and from there synergistic things happen that make overcoming obstacles much easier. StorSimple is a company that is fortunate to have found its way into many good relationships, and we have benefitted a great deal from them in a relatively short time.
In October, we shared the news that Microsoft had reached an agreement to acquire StorSimple. Today, the team is incredibly excited, and we are very pleased to update our customers and partners that Microsoft has completed the acquisition.
The synergy of solving problems with customers and cloud providers is as thrilling today as we hoped it would be when the team first started working on StorSimple. As we move forward with Microsoft, we will expand our development and go-to-market teams with the goal of seeing cloud-integrated storage (CiS) become a best practice for enterprise data centers across the globe. We look forward to building up the relationships we have and making new ones going forward.
StorSimple has been on the leading edge of enabling hybrid clouds that empower enterprise data and applications. We now see a way to continue that success and deliver it as a building block for cloud-integrated IT architectures. With the help of our team members, the extended Microsoft family and our customers, we hope to deliver on that vision - over and over again in the years to come.
