Hybrid cloud provider NetApp
has acquired cloud storage company Talon Storage (Talon). NetApp, which has headquarters in Sunnyvale, California, United States, was established in 1992. Billing itself as “the data authority for hybrid cloud”, the company provides a suite of hybrid cloud data services that are designed to “simplify management of applications and data across cloud and on-premises environments”. Its acquisition will add remote and branch office service to its cloud data options. Financial aspects of the deal were not released.
Talon, which has headquarters in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, United States, was founded in 2010. The company’s services extend to data consolidation and centralization, on-premise, hybrid-cloud or public cloud storage, and file sharing and collaboration options. It specializes in cloud consolidation and data centralization strategy services that address the “ever-increasing growth of unstructured data worldwide”. These services help customers by helping them manage the “new compliance requirements, SLAs, and end-user needs” that impact a company’s ability to deliver data. Talon's software will be integrated with the company’s Cloud Volumes ONTAP, Cloud Volumes and Azure NetApp Files options.
"As we grow our cloud data services offerings, we are excited about the potential that lies in front of this new combined team to deliver complete solutions for primary workloads," explained NetApp's SVP and GM of Cloud Data Services business unit, Mr Anthony Lye. "We share the same vision as the team did at Talon -- a unified footprint of unstructured data that all users access seamlessly, regardless of where in the world they are, as if all users and data were in the same physical location."Do you know of any other companies involved in acquisitions?
