Axcient and eFolder Merge to Form Data Protection Giant: Page 2 of 2

Together, the two companies will have a solution portfolio spanning file sync and share, BDR, and disaster recovery-as-a-service, plus a 50,000-strong customer base ranging from small businesses to mid-market firms. By Rich Freeman

In December 2015, meanwhile, BDR vendor Carbonite Inc. took a step past its roots in the consumer and “very small business” space into the mid-market by purchasing the EVault division of Seagate Technology. More recently, it bought high-availability and data migration specialist Double-Take Software from Irvine, Calif.-based Vision Solutions Inc.

eFolder, for its part, acquired BDR vendor Replibit LLC in June of last year. That was the same month in which Axcient launched Fusion, a new solution designed to help businesses boost efficiency and save money by consolidating siloed non-production workloads in areas ranging from backup, to archiving, testing, and development, among others.
