Dell Technologies has acquired Israel-based open source, multi-cloud orchestration platform Cloudify to bolster its cloud services.
According to various sources, the transaction could be worth at up to $100m.
Established in 2016, the open-source DevOps automation platform delivers an environment as a service technology which include infrastructure, networking, and existing automation tools.
Cloudify is said to have been built to bridge the gap between DevOps and IT service management procedures and to manage heterogeneous cloud environments at scale.
With the Cloudify platform, all private clouds such as OpenStack and VMware, public clouds like Amazon Web Services, Azure, and Google Compute Platform, virtual machines and container technologies such as Kubernetes workloads are turned into certified environments. These can help automate DevOps operations, governance and compliance processes, and support cloud migration.
Dell Technologies and Cloudify have not publicly disclosed the transaction but the former has published documents indicating its investment with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
A spokesperson of Dell Technologies has been quoted by TechCrunch, as saying: “Dell Technologies announced that it has completed the acquisition of Cloudify. This transaction allows Dell to continue to innovate our edge offerings.”
Cloudify is a spin off from GigaSpaces Technologies, which is an in-memory computing software provider.
The DevOps automation platform is also used by telecoms and carriers for managing network functions virtualisation (NFV).
In November 2021, Dell Technologies wrapped up the spin-off of its 81% stake in cloud computing and virtualisation technology firm VMware to secure $9.3bn in proceeds.
Recently, in December 2022, the American tech major entered into a partnership with Quantum-safe encryption provider Arqit Quantum to provide quantum-safe solutions to its clients.
