NetApp acquires virtual desktop firm CloudJumper
NetApp's Virtual Desktop Service is the first product to emerge from the acquisition
The acquisition is said to have resulted in a new NetApp Virtual Desktop Service (VDS) which aims to resolve the most demanding issues faced in virtual desktop services and application management.
It is also said to provide customers with a total solution on the public cloud of their choice in order to deploy, manage, and monitor applications, as well as optimisation, the company explained.
Anthony Lye, senior vice president and general manager of NetApp's Cloud Data Services business unit, said that providing “a consistent virtual desktop experience at scale while keeping data available and secure without sacrificing performance has always been important and is especially critical in today’s unprecedented environment”.
“NetApp and CloudJumper provide a simplified management platform for delivering virtual desktop infrastructure, storage and data management across Microsoft Azure, AWS and Google Cloud with best in class virtual desktop management combined with best in class storage and data services,” he added.
NetApp is said to contribute to the existing CloudJumper channel partner program by providing resources to strengthen the capabilities of MSP, VAR, SI, and ISV partners in order to resolve customer issues and expand their businesses.
NetApp VDS will also provide CloudJumper’s customers with flexible and adaptable data storage, according to NetApp, which includes features such as global file caching and backup, which will assist businesses in moving their operations to the cloud
NetApp VDS is available immediately on the NetApp Cloud Central site. It will also be integrated with Azure NetApp Files and Cloud Volumes in the near future.
Cloud services have, to an extent, escaped the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown. Google Cloud has experienced a 52% year-on-year surge in revenue for the first quarter of 2020, while Microsoft beat Wall Street expectations on Wednesday following increased demand in its cloud-based services such as Teams and Xbox.
