Cloud computing company Nutanix is all set to acquire cloud monitoring platform provider Netsil. With this acquisition, Nutanix will leverage Netsil’s cloud monitoring platform in a bid to help their clients identify performance related issues.
According to research firm Gartner, the cloud computing industry is looking to consolidate their offerings by adding performance-based products to their suite. They also believe that many of the cloud computing products in the market offer solutions in silos and that there is a huge demand for a holistic one.
Nutanix say that acquiring Netsil’s cloud monitoring platform will enable them with application monitoring and dependency mapping intelligence in real time for cloud environments. They also say that this acquisition will allow them to move up in the market considering the need for a complete solution.
According to Nutanix, the acquisition seals quite a gap with respect to their offerings. Speaking about the advantage offered by Netsil, Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development Officer, Nutanix, commented:
Netsil’s innovative technology offers an original approach to simple yet comprehensive application discovery and operations management across multiple cloud environments and will be a powerful addition to Nutanix.
Netsil, which can be consumed as a cloud-based service, and when combined with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software, gives both DevOps and IT teams the power to quickly deploy and operate applications with confidence, in any cloud, at any scale, while ensuring reliability, performance and security.
Netsil say that they are quite excited about this deal. Speaking about this in detail, Harjot Gill, founder and CEO of Netsil, commented:
Joining Nutanix gives Netsil’s technology a great opportunity to be a force multiplier. Nutanix has built a very solid Enterprise Cloud OS platform, which when combined with Netsil’s real-time observability, becomes even more strategic when addressing a growing microservices market. We are really happy to be joining a company where Netsil’s capabilities will be used to their fullest.
Both parties have not revealed the terms of the deal since regulatory conditions are currently being worked out.
