ElephantDrive Acquired by Jungle Disk
May 2022 by Marc Jacob
Texas-based Jungle Disk has announced its acquisition of ElephantDrive — the best-in-class consumer solution for long-term cloud storage of photos, videos, and documents.
The merger, which marks Jungle Disk’s first move into the consumer market, extends its suite of cloud backup offerings to this fast growing market segment. ElephantDrive will operate as an independent business unit, with a renewed mission to focus on the importance of protecting cherished family memories and critical documents.
Jungle Disk and ElephantDrive both launched in 2006 as early adopters of the first applications built on Amazon’s S3 storage platform. Jungle Disk has experienced rapid growth in the small, mid-size, and enterprise business markets following its acquisitions of KeepItSafe, LiveVault, and OffsiteDatasync in 2021. The addition of ElephantDrive to its portfolio of data backup and recovery companies positions the growing brand for success in the consumer market.
The merger will allow Jungle Disk to combine its backup and recovery infrastructure with ElephantDrive’s market-leading Network-Attached Storage (NAS) and consumer storage solutions, to create a powerhouse that serves every backup need of individuals and families.
As part of the merger, Jungle Disk Chief Revenue Officer Nick Nelson assumes the role of Chairman and CRO of ElephantDrive and is committed to its mission of protecting family photos, videos, and documents.
