FilesX specialises in continuous data protection and 'nearly instant' data and application recovery software for enterprises and remote/branch offices running Windows.
After completing the deal, IBM said it intends that the FilesX technology will become part of its Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) range.
Specifically, Big Blue believes that FilesX data protection technology would complement its existing Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files software, which is targeted at SMB customers and individual PC users.
"The FilesX acquisition would complement IBM's vision of enterprise data protection by adding critical capabilities for remote offices, delivering continuous data protection for applications and servers, and supporting business user needs with nearly instantaneous recovery of data," said Al Zollar, general manager, Tivoli software, IBM.
The acquisition is expected to close shortly. Financial terms were not disclosed.
