Pure Storage expands knowledge of software-defined storage by acquisition Compuverde

Pure Storage recently acquired Swedish company Compuverde, an expert in file storage solutions for large businesses and cloud providers, among others. With the acquisition, the American storage specialist mainly wants to help end users to switch more easily to hybrid cloud environments for their data storage.

With this acquisition, the storage specialist wants to gain more knowledge in the field of file-based storage solutions. With the portfolio of the Swedish company, the possibilities of Pure Storage in the field of file based storage are, according to the Swedish company, further expanded. Especially as this should ultimately help end users to more easily decide whether to store their data on-premise, in the cloud or in hybrid environments.

More file based storage to the (hybrid) cloud

Especially for the latter, the use of file-based storage is becoming increasingly interesting, according to the storage specialist. According to Gartner research, the use of file-based storage for unstructured data for workloads of business-critical applications in public clouds is increasing significantly.

As more and more of these important applications are housed in hybrid environments, Pure Storage sees that especially file-based storage in these environments can also offer the same advanced possibilities as in on-premise environments.

One of the reasons for this is that file-based storage in hybrid environments can remove certain challenges for data movement. Hence the acquisition of a real file based storage specialist such as Compuverde.

Partners and customers

In addition to expertise in file-based storage, Compuverde also offers a robust ecosystem of technical partners and an extensive customer portfolio. End-users of the Swedish supplier’s storage solutions can be found worldwide, such as telecoms companies, financial institutions and media companies.

Financial details of the acquisition have not been disclosed.
