GARNER – CloudJumper, which boasts it never had to raise venture capital over its 20-year existence, is becoming part of tech giant NetApp.

The deal comes as demand for work-from-home capabilities grows as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

NetApp, which operates one of its major corporate campuses in Research Triangle Park, disclosed the deal early Wednesday.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

“Our software solution is called Cloud Workspace Management Suite (CWMS),” the Garner firm says.

“CWMS is a VDI & RDS alternative to Citrix and VMware. The utility of Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) is exponentially enhanced through CWMS.”

NetApp cited several reasons for making the deal.

“The ability to provide a consistent virtual desktop experience at scale while keeping data available and secure without sacrificing performance has always been important and is especially critical in today’s unprecedented environment,” said Anthony Lye, senior vice president and general manager of NetApp’s Cloud Data Services business unit, in the announcement.

“NetApp and CloudJumper provide a simplified management platform for delivering virtual desktop infrastructure, storage and data management across Microsoft Azure, AWS and Google Cloud with best in class virtual desktop management combined with best in class storage and data services.”
