IBM acquires hybrid cloud firm Sanovi Technologies

IBM has acquired Sanovi Technologies in order to ramp up the firm's hybrid cloud disaster recovery facilities.

Big Blue announced the buyout on October 27, stating the deal will "enhance IBM resiliency capabilities with the help of advanced analytics to meet complexities of hybrid environments."

Financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed.

Based in Bangalore, India, Sanovi Technologies has been working with enterprise players and SMBs for over a decade through providing cloud migration and IT recovery solutions.

The company's Application Defined Continuity (ADC) technology is used for workloads across physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures, and it is Sanovi's Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) capabilities which are of particular interest to IBM.

For today's enterprise players to leverage cloud technology, data centers, and networking effectively, disaster management procedures should be in place to reduce service disruption should something go wrong.

IBM says that Sanovi's software will augment the firm's existing DRM solutions and will simplify client workflows, help automate the disaster recovery process, and reduce recovery time, operational costs, and drill testing time.
