Insight Venture Partners creates value within its portfolio

We already mentioned Insight Venture Partners recently, especially in this article, and it seems that VC partners really wish to increase portfolio value and synergy. The last few facts illustrates that perfectly with Unitrends, Spanning, Kaseya, Veeam and N2WS:
  • January 16, Veeam confirmed the acquisition of N2WS for $42.5M in cash to enhance AWS solution. N2WS will continue to operate as an independent company. Veeam and N2WS were already partner illustrated by the partnership announced in May 2017 around Veeam Availability Suite for AWS powered by N2WS' Cloud Protection Manager.
  • March 1st, Unitrends and Spanning announced a partnership meaning that Unitrends will be able to offer a solution to protect Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite and Salesforce based on Spanning technologies. The solution for Office 365 is already available and the 2 others will be later in 2018.
  • March 6th, Kaseya unveiled Kaseya Unified Backup based on Unitrends MSP (not found on Unitrends web site, bizarre) and even go further with Kaseya Cloud Backup.
  • So we need now a deal between Kaseya and Spanning, let's see if it will happen...
We anticipate even more consolidation and technology collaboration within their portfolio comapnies and why not a new data protection leader, we'll see...
