VMware acquires Bitnami to Build on Multi-Cloud and Kubernetes Strategy

VMware recently announced the acquisition of Bitnami. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Bitnami is an application packaging company with a large number of click-to-deploy applications and development stacks for major cloud and Kubernetes environments. Bitnami application catalogue provides the latest versions of validated and highly secure open and closed source software application packages.

With a focus on multi-cloud, in November 2018, VMware acquired of Heptio, a company leading in the open Kubernetes ecosystem, for an undisclosed sum. Heptio is known for its proven expertise and leadership in Kubernetes and will only result in the tighter integration of Kubernetes in the enterprise environment.

VMware is focusing its multi-cloud journey by delivering VMware Cloud Foundation as a product and service globally, helping customers with cloud-native services management, security and operations at large scale with CloudHealth and delivering the Kubernetes capabilities to build cloud-native applications with ease, notes the announcement.

Executive Opinion

General Manager, Cloud Services, VMware, Milin Desai and General Manager, Cloud Native Applications, VMware, Paul Fazzone said in the blog post, "This will also be an opportunity for VMware’s existing Managed Service Provider (MSP) and VMware-based Cloud Service Provider (CSP) partners to provide Bitnami’s application content to their end customers, and deliver value beyond infrastructure to help their customers with their respective digital transformation journeys."

Bitnami in a blog post, stated, "Joining forces with VMware means that we will be able to both double-down on the breadth and depth of our current offering and bring Bitnami to even more clouds as well as accelerating our push into the enterprise."

Bitnami’s Impact on VMware

With Bitnami's capabilities, VMware will be in a position to help their customers to easily deploy application packages on public, private or hybrid cloud environments using optimal format—virtual machine (VM), containers and Kubernetes helm charts

VMware in the announcement also noted that they will continue to invest in Bitnami’s product portfolio to enable customers to build and deploy applications more quickly and easily in the cloud environments.
