The acquisition of Enstratius intends to complement Dell's offerings such as Foglight performance tracking, Quest ONE identity and access management, Boomi integration platform and AppAssure and NetVault security tools, Dell said Monday.
Minneapolis-based Enstratius is also intended to help Dell grow its multi-cloud management and application technologies.
Enstratius works with enterprises to provision and scale applications, manage application settings and monitor cloud usage.
“As enterprises increase their use of public, private and hybrid clouds, the need for controls, security, governance and automation becomes more critical,“ said Tom Kendra, vice president and general manager of systems management at Dell’s software business.
Enstratius supports more than 20 public and private cloud platforms such as OpenStack, VMware, Rackspace, Amazon Web Services and Windows Azure.
David Bagley, Enstratius CEO at Enstratius, said the two companies will aim to help organizations deliver application and information technology services across on-premises data centers, private clouds and off-premises public cloud services.
