VMware to buy cloud automation solutions provider DynamicOps

VMware has decided to acquire DynamicOps, a provider of cloud automation solutions.

The company did not share the terms of the acquisition.

DynamicOps’ cloud automation solutions enable management of IT services across heterogeneous environments — VMware-based private and public clouds, physical infrastructures, multiple hypervisors and Amazon Web Services.

“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 strengthen VMware’s position in the cloud computing market.

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.

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. 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,” said Rich Krueger, CEO, DynamicOps.
