Microsoft and ClearSky Data have entered into a licensing agreement to enable access to Microsoft’s Server Message Block (SMB) file transport technology for ClearSky’s on-demand, hybrid cloud storage service. The agreement will enable users to transport multiple files or programs between ClearSky’s service and Windows tools simultaneously.

Since Microsoft launched its IP licensing program in December 2003, it has entered into more than 1,200 licensing agreements, according to a statement from the company.
