Hewlett Packard Enterprise has acquired Switzerland-based Trilead, a small data protection software vendor. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Altendorf, Switzerland-based, Trilead is a developer of low-cost data protection software for VMware vSphere and ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtualized environments. The company’s software is available in three versions: the free edition, which backs up virtual machines while they are running, and allows drag-and-drop copying of files between VMware, Windows, Linux and FreeBSD servers; the Pro edition, which adds tape backup, incremental backups, offsite backup copies, file-level restore, cloud backups and replication; and last the Enterprise edition, which adds several advanced cloud backup and restore features, encryption, and support for certain other products such as EMC XtremIO and VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN). Prices for these products are based on one license per installation regardless of the number of virtual machines or processors used.

Working with Trilead is no longer new for HPE, the two companies have already made partnership in the past. The company, back when it was known as Hewlett Packard, included Trilead’s products as part of its software bundle in its HP EVA 6000 array lines.  

Trilead is the latest and second investment HPE has made in the storage software industry. In January,it acquired an equity stake in Scality, a developer of object storage software.

Trilead officials said in a statement: 
"We are thrilled to announce that Trilead is now a part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise and its family of global and industry leading Information Management & Governance solutions. It’s been an exciting adventure for all of us at Trilead, thanks to our dedicated community of partners and customers. There is a lot more to come and we look forward to continued enhancements under the Hewlett Packard Enterprise brand."

Formed in 2015 and headquartered in Palo Alto, California, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is an enterprise-focused organization with three divisions: Enterprise Group (servers, storage, networking, consulting and support), Enterprise Services, Software and Financial Services. Hewlett Packard Enterprise is one of two new publicly listed companies created from a split of the original Hewlett-Packard Company dating back from 1939. The split was completed on November 1, 2015.
