VMware to Acquire DynamicOps, Inc.
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/02/12 -- VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire DynamicOps, Inc., a provider of cloud automation solutions that enable provisioning and management of IT services across heterogeneous environments -- VMware-based private and public clouds, physical infrastructures, multiple hypervisors and Amazon Web Services. Terms of the acquisition were not announced. The acquisition is scheduled to close in Q3 2012 subject to customary closing conditions.
"As IT organizations evolve from builders to brokers of services many seek to provide access to diverse cloud resources in a controlled, managed fashion," said Ramin Sayar, vice president and general manager, Virtualization and Cloud Management, VMware. "DynamicOps' multi-cloud and multi-platform capabilities help to strengthen VMware's position as the infrastructure and management vendor of choice for cloud computing."
VMware believes that customers will benefit most by a standardized architecture, but will build solutions that make it easy for customers to choose the model that best works for their needs, including heterogeneous environments/management. Customers that have standardized their private and public clouds on VMware vSphere® can continue to rely on VMware vCloud Director to enable aggregation and management of virtual and cloud resources.
For customers whose requirements for managing and provisioning resources extend beyond VMware-only environments, DynamicOps builds on the capabilities of vCloud Director by enabling customers to consume multi-cloud resources (e.g., physical environments, Hyper-V- and Xen-based hypervisors, and Amazon EC2). DynamicOps' policy-based service governor capabilities automate and control how applications and users are provisioned across physical and heterogeneous cloud infrastructure resources.
"VMware and DynamicOps share a common vision for dramatically simplifying the management and provisioning of IT resources in the Cloud era," said Rich Krueger, CEO, DynamicOps. "I'm excited about DynamicOps joining VMware, and expect our customers to benefit from increased investment and support in the solutions they rely on to optimize their delivery of IT-as-a-service."
DynamicOps, Inc. originated as a spinoff of Credit Suisse's IT unit.
