Mirantis acquires Shipa

Mirantis, which you may recall from its OpenStack days and its acquisition of Docker Enterprise in 2019, has announced the acquisition of Shipa, a startup that builds tools to help developers develop, deploy, and manage cloud-native applications. Shipa previously raised $3.75 million in a seed round led by Engineering Capital and Jump Capital in 2020. Mirantis tells me that the acquisition today cost between $10 to $30 million.

Mirantis intends to integrate Shipa into its Lens platform, which will help businesses accelerate the delivery of cloud-native applications.

The two companies are also collaborating on platform integration, with the first Lens integration into the Lens Desktop scheduled for March. Shipa will also be integrated into the Mirantis Kubernetes Engine.

According to TechCrunch Bruno Andrade, co-founder and CEO of Shipa said, “Our goal at Shipa, from the beginning, was to give DevOps and platform engineering teams the capability to choose their own underlying tools with a focus on automation to reduce the complexity of the technology infrastructure required by cloud-native applications, Our technology makes deployment and management of applications and updates much easier and faster by letting developers focus on what they do best and not infrastructure.”

Andrade, together with his co-founder and VP of engineering Vivek Pandey, as well as the rest of the Shipa team, will join Mirantis.
