Microsoft acquires InMage disaster-recovery software company

Microsoft has acquired San Jose-based InMage, which develops backup and disaster recovery systems for businesses.

Calling InMage “an innovator in the emerging area of cloud-based business continuity,” Microsoft said in a blog post today that: “Our customers tell us that business continuity – the ability to backup, replicate and quickly recover data and applications in case of a system failure – is incredibly important. … This acquisition will accelerate our strategy to provide hybrid cloud business continuity solutions for any customer IT environment, be it Windows or Linux, physical or virtualized on Hyper-V, VMware or others. This will make Azure the ideal destination for disaster recovery for virtually every enterprise server in the world.”

Microsoft said it’s now working to integrate the InMage Scout technology into its Azure Site Recovery service, and plans to enable data migration to Azure with InMage Scout. InMage’s customers can continue to use its products and services.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
