Cristie Software extends its solution portfolio for the recovery of Linux-, AIX- and Solaris-based systems through the acquisition of Storix, Inc.

Cristie Software, a leading system recovery, replication, and migration solutions provider, today announced the completion of the acquisition of Storix, Inc. for an undisclosed sum. Storix is a provider of backup and recovery software for Linux-, AIX- and Solaris-based virtual and physical systems through its product SBAdmin.

Storix provides system and data protection to over 200 customers, mostly in the United States.

Cristie Software provides bare-metal recovery solutions that integrate with leading backup solutions, including Dell Technologies’ Avamar and Networker products, Cohesity DataProtect, Rubrik Security Cloud and IBM Spectrum Protect. The addition of Storix SBAdmin extends bare-metal recovery support for IBM Linux on Power hardware.
