Unitrends today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire PHD Virtual Technologies, one of the fist innovator of virtual backup and disaster recovery assurance solutions. Both companies have primary investments from Insight Venture Partners, a leading global private equity and venture capital firm. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

I’ve wrote about PHD Virtual products (PHD Virtual Backup 6.2 with Cloud Hook, Using PHD Virtual Monitor with XenServer and vSphere, and more) and their solutions remains unique in Citrix XenServer environment and still valuable in a VMware one (still I’ve not understand why VMware has build VDR instead of simple build esXpress). Now will be more interesting see what’s happen from this acquisition.

For it’s another confirmation that there are a lot of changes in the ecosystem world (as writte in What’s happen to the virtualization ecosystem?).
