Big congratulations to Avere Systems, who recently announced their acquisition by Microsoft. Avere is a company I’ve followed since inception in 2008. Their technology started as an edge NAS filer, extending data centre content to branch offices. Over time, the platform became virtual and moved to the public cloud. Today, vFXT (the cloud instance of the filer), enables customers to present their data to cloud resources and use the benefit of public cloud analytics and processing, without having to commit to the wholesale migration of data to public cloud storage.
Interesting blog post over at architecting.it and shows Microsoft’s commitment to developing the hybrid cloud and its applications, check it out!
I hope you all had a the best of holiday seasons, and i should be back again soon.
Tchau for now!
