StorCentric Acquires Retrospect to Offer Enhanced Backup and Recovery Software Solutions
StorCentric, the parent company of storage brands, Drobo and Nexsan, has acquired privately-owned backup software company, Retrospect, Inc. As its third acquisition in a less than a year, Retrospect is enabling StorCentric to offer an expanded range of storage, archiving and backup technologies. 

Retrospect is a provider of backup and recovery tools for consumers, professionals and SMBs and will operate as an independent, wholly-owned subsidiary of StorCentric.

Retrospect provides award-winning backup and recovery software and enables over 500,000 customers in over 100 countries to recover quickly from accidents, hardware failure, theft, and disaster. Retrospect Backup supports both consumers and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with a range of backup and recovery capabilities. These include a wide selection of platform support for servers, endpoints, and virtual environments, as well as seamless integration with over twenty cloud storage providers, including Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, and Dropbox. Retrospect Backup protects data for customers as diverse as individual professionals to NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

Focus on the Customer

The acquisition places StorCentric in a strong position to offer customers a complete and comprehensive storage solution. Professionals and SMBs using Drobo storage products will now be able to seamlessly add another layer of data protection and integrate with off-site cloud solutions with cross platform support including Windows, Mac, Linux, VMware, and Hyper -V.

Mihir Shah, CEO at StorCentric, commented, "At StorCentric, we are focused on providing solutions to protect our customers' digital information, and with this acquisition, we can now offer unrivalled backup and recovery solutions. Retrospect has an impressive reputation in the market with a loyal base of over 500,000 customers, which is a testament to the quality of their products."

"For 30 years, Retrospect has helped millions of professionals and businesses protect their data," said JG Heithcock, Co-Founder and CEO of Retrospect, Inc. "We're very pleased to join the StorCentric family, providing StorCentric customers with a complete storage solution with built-in data protection. The StorCentric brands have a long history of technical innovation, and Retrospect is the next step toward building a market-leading storage solutions company."

StorCentric Invests in Growth Strategy Through 3rd Acquisition

StorCentric acquired Drobo and Nexsan in August of 2018 to provide a robust portfolio of storage solutions with a broad and feature rich product line. Both Drobo and Nexsan have a history of storage innovation with a focus on efficiency, ease of use and high-quality products.

"We laid out our strategy for StorCentric to unify exceptional technology and create a world-class storage company. This third acquisition not only highlights the execution of our strategy, but also our unrelenting commitment to protect our customer's digital information. We will continue to grow both organically and through further acquisitions," said Mihir Shah, CEO of StorCentric.

The three brands under StorCentric offer a product portfolio with world class hardware and software storage products, IP, and talent focused on helping customers scale their businesses while accessing, backing up and archiving critical data. StorCentric now has a combined record of 1 million customers, 60 years of storage expertise and a focus on the Media & Entertainment, Education, Government and Healthcare verticals.
