EMC Acquires 3 Start-ups: CloudScaling, Maginatics and Spanning

EMC announced the acquisition of three start-ups focused on enterprise cloud networking:

  • Cloudscaling, a start-up based in San Francisco, developing an OpenStack-powered cloud infrastructure system for enterprises. Cloudscaling's  Open Cloud System (OCS) provides an operating system to manage compute, storage and networking in the cloud.
  • Maginatics, a start-up based in Mountain View, California,  is a cloud provider offering a highly consistent global namespace accessible from any device or location, unlocking enterprise hybrid cloud choice and flexibility for EMC customers and partners through interfaces into a variety of private and public clouds. EMC said the addition of Maginatics extends its cloud data protection strategy by enabling unified data protection and management across disparate private, public and hybrid clouds. Maginatics technology also facilitates efficient data mobility across multiple clouds with data deduplication, WAN optimization, handling of large objects and multi-threading. EMC expects to integrate Maginatics technology with existing EMC data protection software, storage and services.
  • Spanning, a start-up based in Austin, Texas, that provides subscription-based backup and recovery for “born in the cloud” applications and data. Spanning solutions prevent business interruption due to data loss in Google Apps and Salesforce.com (a solution for Microsoft Office 365 will be available in the first half of 2015). EMC saud the combination of its data protection portfolio and Spanning’s services uniquely positions EMC to help users confidently deploy data protection solutions across all applications and workloads, regardless of where the data is created or where the applications reside. 


Financial terms were not disclosed.

"What we have here is a trifecta of customer choice for hybrid cloud environments. Each company offers unique technology for delivering cloud abstraction and flexibility for customers. Together with the new EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud olution, EMC customers and partners are better positioned than ever to capitalize on the promise of hybrid clouds and deliver the agility of IT-as-a-Service that their businesses require,” stated David Goulden, Chief Executive Officer of EMC Information Infrastructure.
