Mountain View headquartered multi-cloud data management firm Veritas has acquired Operations AG, a privately-held software company based in Walldorf, Germany.
The acquisition of the company, which trades as fluidOps, enables organisations to orchestrate, integrate, manage and optimise structured and unstructured data sources housed in silos across on-premises, private, public and hybrid cloud environments.
Veritas cited its recent research, The Truth in Cloud, saying the study showed that the majority of global organisations (56 per cent) operated with a cloud-first mentality when deploying new applications and managing workloads.
“This acquisition will accelerate Veritas’ mission to enable customers to harness the power of their data – regardless of where that data is housed – while driving insights that can lead to competitive advantage,” it added, noting that the move boosted its Veritas’ 360 Data Management strategy bringing in additional artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.
It will integrate the technology into many of its current and future data management solutions, starting with Veritas Access, version 7.4, a software-defined network-attached storage solution for unstructured data, which provides enterprise-wide insight and management of an organisation’s complete data protection and storage infrastructure. Veritas Access version 7.4 will be available in the coming quarters.
“Veritas and fluidOps are squarely focused on helping customers harness the power of their information _whether that information is on-premises, in the cloud or in complex hybrid environments,” said Mike Palmer, executive vice president and chief product officer, Veritas. “We believe this acquisition will rapidly advance Veritas’ 360 Data Management approach, providing new levels of orchestration and semantic integration that is critical for today’s global enterprises.”
