VMware to Acquire DynamicOps for Cloud Mgt Features

VMware will acquire DynamicOps, 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. Financial terms were not disclosed.

DynamicOps originated in 2008 as a spin-off of Credit Suisse’s IT unit, which had developed Virtual Resource Manager (VRM) software to address the operational and governance challenges of rolling out virtualization technology across a global organization comprising several distinct businesses. The company is based in Burlington, MA.

VMware said customers that have standardized their private and public clouds on VMware vSphere should continue to rely on VMware vCloud Director to enable aggregation and management of virtual and cloud resources. For those with requirements 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).

"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."
