VMware to Acquire Cloud Automation Vendor DynamicOps
Expanding beyond the delivery of software for its own cloud platform, VMware is acquiring DynamicOps for its heterogenous cloud management offerings.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. DynamicOps provides software for running virtualized workloads across different cloud platforms. DynamicOps' software is designed to allow users to provision and manage virtualized workloads across multiple platforms. It can work with not only VMware's software but with competing technologies, such as Microsoft's Hyper-V and the open-source Xen hypervisors, as well as with Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (ECC).
