The acquistion advances Microsoft's Cloud OS vision and also help customers embrace hybrid cloud computing

Microsoft has signed an agreement to acquire StorSimple, a hybrid local and hybrid cloud storage technology for Windows platforms, for an undisclosed amount.

The acquisition is expected to improve Microsoft's Cloud OS vision and also help customers embrace hybrid cloud computing.

StorSimple applications combine the data management functions of primary storage, backup, archive and disaster recovery with cloud integration, enabling customers to optimise storage costs, data protection and service agility.

The California based Cloud-integrated Storage (CiS) applications provider also protects and restores production data using public clouds.

Microsoft Server and Tools Division corporate vice president Michael Park said: "StorSimple's approach helps customers seamlessly integrate on-premises storage with cloud storage through intelligent automation and management."
