EMC acquires TwinStrata to push corporate data into the cloud

EMC will embed TwinStrata's CloudArray into its new VMAX3 enterprise data service platform

Storage vendor EMC has scooped up cloud storage management company TwinStrata, the companies announced Tuesday.

The U.S.-based TwinStrata is the developer of CloudArray, a platform that allows enterprises to move their on premise stored data into over 20 public or private clouds. Data put on CloudArray is encrypted by default and automatically gets replicated or moved to a cloud service depending on a company's requirements.

EMC plans to embed CloudArray into its new VMAX3 enterprise data service platform, helping companies get access to infrequently access cloud data for lower costs, EMC said.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

VMAX3, launched by EMC on Tuesday, builds on its VMAX enterprise storage platform and aims to help IT departments regain control of a company's whole storage infrastructure. The arrival of public cloud services allowed enterprises to bypass IT, adding risks by placing a company's data outside of IT's control, EMC said. VMAX3 should help return control to IT while maintaining the flexibility offered by public cloud services, it added.

TwinStrata will continue offering its services to current customers as usual, but now with a bigger global brand behind it, TwinStrata CEO Nicos Vekiarides said on the company's website.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
