IBM to Acquire Cleversafe to Strengthen IBM's Hybrid and Storage Cloud
FREMONT, CA: The digital transformation of businesses and the rapid growth of unstructured data calls for on premise and storage deployments. To this end, IBM plans to acquire Cleversafe, provider of object based storage software to boost IBM’s hybrid cloud storage strategy.
The acquisition will result in the integration of Cleversafe’s portfolio with IBM’s Cloud business unit to provide its users data flexibility and simplified management. Cleversafe’s Dispersed Storage Network (dsNet) solutions provide on premise storage options for service providers at a low cost. IBM will incorporate this solution to its Spectrum Storage tools for data protection and backup. Additionally, dsNet solutions will be incorporated to IBM Cloud for enhancements in its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Softlayer and the Softlayer Object Storage services platform to offer its users greater choice of performance and cost optimization through a hybrid cloud deployment model.
Moreover, IBM users will now be able to use Softlayer cloud services and IBM Bluemix in conjunction with the Cleversafe technology to create applications. IBM will now offer Cleversafe solutions to store and manage large amounts of data while meeting the demands of data intensive workloads delivered through the cloud.
"IBM is an innovator and leader in cloud and storage and we're excited about the opportunities that lay ahead once this transaction closes. Together with IBM we can extend our object storage leadership position to address the broadest set of workloads for clients with the most expansive set of object-based solutions," says John Morris, President and CEO, Cleversafe.
