VMware acquires DynamicOps

Posted by virtualization.info Staff   |   Tuesday, July 24th, 2012   |  

On July 2nd, VMware announced the acquisition of DynamicOps, Inc. Headquartered in Burlington, MA,

DynamicOps is a company that works in the emerging market for cloud automation solutions that enable provisioning and management of IT services across heterogeneous environments.

DynamicOps products help enterprises to accelerate the creation and the benefit of private and hybrid cloud adoption.

From the start of 2012, VMWare’s main focus was to help customers realize the benefit of virtualization, with the acquisition of DynamicOps and the combination of their existing products they could provide a complete infrastructure stack to build a cloud as well as a comprehensive management solution that addresses the consumption of cloud resources in a uniform way.

In this plan perfectly fits the recent acquisition of Nicira, specialized in software-defined networking (SDN) and network virtualization for open source initiatives.

Leslie Muller of CTO and Founder, DynamicOps declares:

For the past decade I have evangelized the four key attributes of the datacenter of the future, which the combination of VMware and DynamicOps are uniquely suited to enable:

  • 100% virtualized
  • Dematerialized
  • Fully automated
  • Highly personalized

One of DynamicOps’ biggest advantages—and a key reason Global 2000 organizations choose us and VMware was attracted to us—is our ability to quickly integrate with and leverage existing infrastructure.  This tremendous ability will enable us to rapidly integrate DynamicOps products with the VMware ecosystem, making it easy for customers to benefit from our combined solutions without changing their environment or processes

Ramin Sayar, General Manager and   Vice President  for VMware’s  Management Business Unit affirms:

..customers are looking to VMware as their trusted advisor and solutions provider to help them build and manage agile, cost-effective hybrid clouds. We don’t take this responsibility lightly. While this acquisition further strengthens VMware’s position as the infrastructure and management platform of choice for cloud computing, it’s another big step for VMware and our customers on the journey to cloud computing and ITaaS, one we’re delighted to be able to announce today.
