IBM acquires cloud recovery & migration company Sanovi


IBM has acquired Sanovi Technologies, a cloud recovery, migration and enterprise software company, for an undisclosed amount. IBM will make use of this acquisition to strengthen its software, business continuity and disaster recovery services by adding analytics and other elements to its infrastructure. IBM says that Sanovi’s portfolio will reduce its disaster recovery time, operating costs, manage workflows and drill testing time.

This will also let IBM have a central dashboard from where its professionals can automate and monitor recovery point and log the time in their environments. Sanovi will be integrated into IBM by the end of this year. IBM will also make Sanovi’s DRM available as a standalone software license for its partners and customers.

IBM currently claims to have 300 global data centres and 46 IBM cloud data centres across 68 countries, while Sanovi is headquartered in Bangalore and had operations in the US, Middle East and Asia.

Focus on cloud

Cloud services related acquisitions have been on the upswing in the last couple of months. Earlier this week, Wipro acquired Appirio, a US based cloud services company for $500 million to integrate its Salesforce and Workday into Appirio. Google also set up a cloud data center in Mumbai which will be operational by 2017, acquired US-based Apigee, an API management company to enhance its cloud business and bought Anvato, a cloud based platform to scale media processing and workflows in the cloud. Intel acquired Nervana Systems, a cloud based deep learning company reportedly for $400 million. Microsoft and SAP tied up to offer support for the SAP HANA platform (deployed on Microsoft Azure) to work on Microsoft Office 365 and cloud solutions from SAP. In March, Persistent Systems acquired Australia-based PRM Cloud Solutions, a subsidiary of Datetix Group for an undisclosed amount. In January, it signed an agreement to acquire Citrix CloudPlatform and CloudPortal business manager products.
