Microsoft acquires BlueStripe

BlueStripe Software announces the purchase on their official website
Microsoft acquires BlueStripe
This purchase aims to help the Redmond giant to improve application visibility and management across the datacenter and cloud.

BlueStripe Software was founded in 2007 and managed to become a leading provider of application management solutions since then. Microsoft's Enterprise Cloud general manager Mike Neil announced yesterday in a blog post that the Redmond giant has completed the acquisition of BlueStripe.

Solutions built by BlueStripe help to manage distributed applications across multiple operating systems, as well as various datacenter and cloud environments. As the blog post mentioned earlier highlights, "BlueStripe is commonly used today by customers to extend the value of Microsoft System Center by adding application-aware infrastructure performance monitoring."

According to Neil, BlueStripe employees are now a part of the Microsoft family, and the next step is to integrate BlueStripe technology into products and services like System Center and Operations Management Suite (OMS). BlueStripe solutions will be withdrawn from sale "in the near term," but support for existing customers will continue during this period.

As it usually happens with such deals, the financial terms have not been disclosed.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
