Google Cloud CEO Kurian announces deal to buy Elastifile
Google said on Tuesday that it was buying cloud storage company Elastifile for an undisclosed sum. It's the second deal for Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian after the company announced last month it was buying data analytics vendor Looker for $2.6 billion.
According to a blog post by Kurian, the Elastifile deal is slated to close later this year after it garners the usual regulatory approvals.
Bringing Elastifile into the Google Cloud fold will allow the latter to put traditional workloads into Google Cloud Project at a faster rate while also simplifying the management and scaling of data and compute workloads.
"Elastifile is a pioneer in solving the challenges associated with file storage for enterprise-grade applications running at scale in the cloud," Kurian said in the blog. They’ve built a unique software-defined approach to managed Network Attached Storage (NAS), enabling organizations to scale performance or capacity without the cumbersome overhead. Building on this technology, our teams are excited to join together and integrate Elastifile with Google Cloud Filestore."
Earlier this year, Google Cloud launched Elastifile File Service, which is a fully managed version of Elastifile that is being used by eSilicon, Appsbroker and Forbes.
Santa Clara, Calif.-based Elastifile was founded in 2013. Prior to today's news, Elastifile had raised $74 million from investors that included Dell Technologies Capital, Western Digital Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners and Battery Ventures.
