Cloud data management company Veritas have acquired software provider fluidOps in a bid to allow customers with data management capabilities. With this acquisition, Veritas seeks to enable customers with information to orchestrate and manage unstructured data sources in silos across private, public and hybrid cloud environments.
According to Veritas, enterprises struggle with data stored in silos and the challenge grows steep as they use on-premise infrastructure while embracing the cloud. They also say that most enterprises today adopt a cloud-first mentality while deploying new applications.
Speaking about the acquisition, Mike Palmer, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer at Veritas, commented:
Veritas and fluidOps are squarely focused on helping customers harness the power of their information—whether that information is on-premises, in the cloud or in complex hybrid environments.
We believe this acquisition will rapidly advance Veritas’ 360 Data Management approach, providing new levels of orchestration and semantic integration that is critical for today’s global enterprises.
Veritas say that they will be integrating ‘Veritas Access’, a software-defined network attached storage with fluidOps’ software to provide complete data protection and rich insights for their customers.
Excited about the acquisition deal, Dr. Andreas Eberhart, co-founder of fluidOps, commented:
We are delighted to join the Veritas team. Veritas shares this same mission and we’re excited to join forces in helping customers accomplish their business goals.
