Google Cloud is to buy enterprise file storage company Elastifile for a reported $200 million.
The giant described Elastifile as a pioneer in solving the challenges associated with file storage for enterprise-grade applications running at scale in the cloud.
Thomas Kurian (pictured), a former Oracle executive who became CEO of Google Cloud only at the start of this year, said that Elastifile has “built a unique software-defined approach to managed Network Attached Storage (NAS), enabling organizations to scale performance or capacity without cumbersome overhead. Building on this technology, our teams are excited to join together and integrate Elastifile with Google Cloud Filestore.”
