Microsoft to acquire cloud-storage company StorSimple

Microsoft is acquiring Mountain View, Calif.-based cloud-storage company StorSimple.

StorSimple provides services that consolidate the management of primary data, backup disaster recovery and archival data in an integrated on-premises and cloud-storage solution.

“Customers faced with explosive growth in data are looking to the cloud to help them store, manage and archive that data. But, to be effective, cloud storage needs to integrate with IT’s current investments,” Michael Park, a corporate vice president in Microsoft’s Server and Tools division, said in a news release. “StorSimple’s approach helps customers seamlessly integrate on-premises storage with cloud storage through intelligent automation and management.”

Details of the agreement were not disclosed.
