Microsoft has announced that it has acquired cloud-based business continuity vendor InMage.
Microsoft identified that “the ability to backup, replicate and quickly recover data and applications in case of a system failure”* as being incredibly important to customers and the acquisition of InMage provides this solution.
InMage software continuously captures changes in real time data, allowing businesses to instantly recover data to local systems or to remote sites. Microsoft is now working to integrate InMage Scout technology into the Azure Site Recovery service and has already announced its plan to enable data migration to Azure with Scout.
