IBM on Tuesday completed the acquisition of Sanovi Technologies, a privately held company that provides hybrid cloud recovery, cloud migration and business continuity software for enterprise data centers and cloud infrastructure.
Founded in 2003, Sanovi is headquartered in Bangalore, India, and operates in the United States, the Middle East, and Asia. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
IBM expects that addition of Sanovi capabilities with advanced analytics will better enable the IT major to bolster its Software Defined Resiliency strategy and delivery of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery services for clients undergoing digital and hybrid cloud transformation.
With Sanovi’s software, IBM will further empower clients to redefine their disaster recovery strategy in the face of unprecedented industry change.
The enterprise IT vendor said the addition of Sanovi’s orchestration technology to IBM’s existing resiliency portfolio will help to simplify and automate the disaster recovery process, to manage recovery workflows, and to reduce recovery time, operating costs, and disaster recovery drill testing time.
From a central dashboard, resiliency professionals can automate and monitor recovery point and time objectives in their disaster recovery environments by application, server, or data base to work towards business driven recovery outcomes.
IBM plans to integrate the Sanovi capabilities into the IBM Global Technology Services unit. Moving forward, the company envisions leveraging Watson Analytics to expand Sanovi’s Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) capabilities.
