Microsoft and Compuverde have announced they have entered into a license agreement to enable access to Microsoft’s Server Message Block (SMB) file transport technology for Compuverde’s software-defined storage (SDS) solution.

By incorporating SMB connectivity with the flexibility of Compuverde’s SDS, users are able to offload programs or files from multiple servers across multiple locations simultaneously.

“We are excited to partner with an innovative company like Compuverde and provide its customers with our exceptional SMB file transport services for non-Windows solutions,” said Micky Minhas, head of Microsoft Technology Licensing.

“As we continue to invest in licensing intellectual property associated with core technologies, this agreement showcases how Microsoft works with companies like Compuverde to enable solutions like SMB for SDS implementations.”

Compuverde is an established provider of software-defined storage, delivering enterprise-grade general vNAS file systems, hyperconverged virtualization and hybrid cloud support. Founded by a team of storage and software experts in 2008, Compuverde delivers cost-efficient, hardware-agnostic, scale-out solutions to both large consumer brands and industrial business-to-business players.

Compuverde is currently deployed worldwide with service providers, telecom, banking, media and insurance companies. Compuverde’s patented unified solution offers the most flexible, user-friendly and cost-efficient SDS solution on the storage market, and easily scales to hundreds of nodes, exabytes of data and billions of files.

Stefan Bernbo, CEO of Compuverde said,

“The great SDS migration shows no sign of slowing down, and organizations moving some or all of their data and applications will need a robust network file sharing protocol,”

“Partnering with Microsoft offers us the opportunity to deliver the shared access critical to successful cloud computing initiatives.”

This is the companies’ first partnership, and it builds on the trend of Microsoft’s SMB program enabling SDS solutions. The agreement includes access to future generations of SMB.

The partnership is another example of the important role intellectual property (IP) plays in ensuring a healthy and vibrant technology ecosystem. Since Microsoft launched its IP licensing program in December 2003, it has entered into more than 1,200 licensing agreements.
