VMware has announced the intent to acquire CloudHealth Technologies, a company that delivers a cloud operations platform across AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

CloudHealth Technologies platform enables customers to help analyze and manage cloud cost, usage, security and performance centrally for native public clouds.

With this announcement, VMware Cloud Services will have the ability to add delivery of consistent operations across clouds to its portfolio. Once the CloudHealth Technologies deal is closed, VMware cloud automation services, VMware Secure State and Wavefront by VMware will deliver automation and compliance, security and governance, insights and analytics to complement CloudHealth Technologies’ capabilities.

“Multi-cloud usage while beneficial to business creates a unique set of operational problems.” said Raghu Raghuram, chief operating officer, products and cloud services, VMware. “With the addition of CloudHealth Technologies we are delivering a consistent and actionable view into cost and resource management, security and performance for applications across multiple clouds.”

“As organizations scale their cloud environments and expand the use cases, they struggle with how to leverage a multi-cloud model to drive business transformation,” said Tom Axbey, president and chief executive officer, CloudHealth Technologies. “We are thrilled to combine with VMware to address this challenge by delivering a suite of multi-cloud management services that accelerate digital transformation.”

The CloudHealth platform helps customers gain control of their public cloud environments while enabling them to achieve faster business outcomes.

The transaction is expected to close in VMware’s fiscal Q3 2019, subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals. This acquisition is not expected to have a material impact on fiscal 2019 guidance. VMware’s fiscal 2019 guidance, which was updated on the August 23 earnings conference call and posted at ir.vmware.com, remains unchanged.
