Amazon acquires Thinkbox
Thinkbox Software is a small company that was founded back in 2010 and has a portfolio that includes a geometry caching system and image process automation, as well as a render management system, and more. Now, a new page in its history unfolds, as it will soon become a part of Amazon Web Services.
Thinkbox unveiled this acquisition on its blog, but the details are scarce. The entire post that was published yesterday by "Chris and the Thinkbox Team" reads the following: "We're excited to announce that we've been acquired by Amazon! We'll be joining the Amazon Web Services family, and we're looking forward to working together to deliver exciting customer offerings. At this point, it's still business as usual for us. We'll continue to provide you, our customers, with remarkable support whether you work on-prem, in the cloud or both."
A few weeks ago, Amazon Web Services introduced Chime, a new video conference call service. Acquiring a company like Thinkbox Software is a natural step forward for Amazon, which apparently plans to strengthen AWS and to offer a more robust stack of cloud services.
As it usually happens with such deals, its financial terms were not unveiled to the public.
