“Dell Technologies announced that it has completed the acquisition of Cloudify,” a Dell spokesperson said of the deal. “The transaction allows Dell to continue to innovate our edge offerings.”
Cloudify is a startup based in Israel that specializes in cloud orchestration and infrastructure automation. According to the company, Cloudify’s tools are used by cloud architects and DevOps engineers to manage containers, workloads, and more across hybrid environments. Cloudify was spun out of GigaSpaces in 2017; Nati Shalom, the company’s founder and CTO, was also a co-founder of GigaSpaces. The startup has raised less than $8 million since then and is backed by VMware, KPN, and Intel.
The acquisition will beef up Dell’s Cloudify’s DevOps, cloud-native and infrastructure automation capabilities. Cloudify’s platform pitch lets DevOps engineers integrate, automate and manage their product portfolios more easily, including tools like Ansible, Terraform, Kubernetes, ServiceNow, Jenkins, Azure, ARM and TOSCA.
