Microsoft has announced the acquisition of application management technology provider, BlueStripe Software to integrate its technology into Microsoft System Center and Operations Management Suite (OMS). The deal amount has still not been undisclosed. However, the company said that it will discontinue selling the BlueStripe solutions in the near term while continuing to support existing BlueStripe customers during this time.
BlueStripe’s technology helps map, monitor and troubleshoot applications across different operating systems and multiple data center and cloud platforms. It helps enterprises monitor their IT at the infrastructure level so they discover and map applications running on their network and dependencies. It makes easier for IT to maintain service level objectives because the admin will be able to pinpoints problems for faster resolution.
BlueStripe mentioned in a statement on its site that, ” We have worked with Microsoft for years – they’ve been a great customer, a technology supporter, and IT management partner. Going forward, you will see BlueStripe’s technology play an even more important role as new data center and cloud solutions come to market. We are thrilled with the opportunity to be part of the next wave of IT innovation.”
This acquisition is the latest in a series of moves made by Microsoft to help enterprises run and manage their hybrid clouds. “As evidenced through our recent announcements such as Microsoft Azure Stack, OMS, Windows Server 2016 and System Center 2016, Microsoft is committed to providing leading hybrid cloud solutions and support for our customers,” Microsoft’s General Manager for enterprise cloud Mike Neil wrote in a Blog Post.
