eFolder is excited to announce that we have acquired the intellectual property of the Fission Cloud BlockStor and CloudSprint products! eFolder is an established, high-growth technology company that provides cloud-based data protection, business continuity, and sync, share, and collaboration services. eFolder has approximately 200 team members across 13 countries, and is headquartered in Denver, Colorado. eFolder has a network of 3000 channel partners, and has experienced 44 consecutive quarters of growth since its first cloud service hit the market in 2006.
The unique features and IP of Fission Cloud, including Linux backup, VMware backup, and Azure/AWS backup, will be integrated into the eFolder Replibit product. Replibit is a mature image-based backup and disaster recovery product, and is protecting tens of thousands of endpoints and petabytes of data worldwide. eFolder’s product and engineering organization of 50+ people will carry the vision forward of the Fission Cloud product offerings. The eFolder engineering team is currently working with the Fission Cloud engineering team to fully integrate the Fission Cloud IP into the Replibit product offering. During this period of transition, the currently deployed Fission Cloud product will continue to be fully supported, until the Fission Cloud IP has been fully integrated within the Replibit product.
Fission Cloud will continue to provide all services, including technical support, maintenance, billing, and customer service to partners and customers through the transition period until March 31, 2019. Any previously purchased perpetual licenses will continue to be valid. Maintenance for perpetual software can be renewed through the product transition date of March 31, 2018, with support terminating March 31, 2019. After the transition period, eFolder will provide an upgrade option for Fission Cloud partners and customers who wish to upgrade to Replibit from their current Fission Cloud license.
Further details will become available as eFolder and Fission Cloud work together and finish integrating the IP.
