NetApp said on Wednesday that it has acquired CloudJumper, a software company focused on the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and remote desktop services (RDS) markets. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. NetApp plans to use the acquisition to bolster its desktop virtualization capabilities. NetApp's new Virtual Desktop Service (VDS) service will integrate CloudJumper's VDI and RDS technology and expand NetApp's offerings for deploying and managing virtual desktops in public clouds. "The ability to provide a consistent virtual desktop experience at scale while keeping data available and secure without sacrificing performance has always been important and is especially critical in today's unprecedented environment," said Anthony Lye, SVP and GM of NetApp's Cloud Data Services business unit.
