Overview
CTERA Networks is a cloud storage and data protection hardware and software company that specializes in cloud storage gateways, which are integrated with a datacenter or cloud-side service delivery platform, CTERA Portal. It provides network storage combined with asynchronously replicated off-site cloud storage. CTERA markets cloud storage gateways that use traditional file-based NAS protocols with replication to cloud storage.Microsoft was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen on April 4, 1975, to develop and sell BASIC interpreters for Altair 8800. It rose to dominate the personal computer operating system market with MS-DOS in the mid-1980s, followed by Microsoft Windows. The company's 1986 initial public offering, and subsequent rise in its share price, created three billionaires and an estimated 12,000 millionaires from Microsoft employees. Since the 1990s, it has increasingly diversified from the operating system market and has made a number of corporate acquisitions. In May 2011, Microsoft acquired Skype Technologies for $8.5 billion in its largest acquisition to date.
