Microsoft has acquired on-premises and cloud-based business continuity solutions provider InMage to help customers backup, replicate and quickly recover data and applications in case of a system failure.
Microsoft will integrate the InMage Scout technology into its Azure Site Recovery service to provide customers with a simple, cost-effective way to ensure business continuity. Customers can already migrate data to the Azure platform using InMage Scout technology.
Writing in a blog post Takeshi Numoto, corporate vice president of cloud and enterprise marketing at Microsoft, explained that the acquisition will enable Microsoft to provide hybrid cloud business continuity solutions for almost any enterprise’s IT environment, including Windows or Linux and physical or virtualised servers on Hyper-V.
“This will make Azure the ideal destination for disaster recovery for virtually every enterprise server in the world,” said Numoto. “As VMware customers explore their options to permanently migrate their applications to the cloud, this will also provide a great onramp.”
Numoto added: “Enterprise customers are looking for the best, most valuable ways to take advantage of the cloud and business continuity is often a great place to start. It is a key element of our continued effort to deliver a consistent hybrid platform and a broad range of services that connect customer, partner and Microsoft clouds.”
