Microsoft acquires BlueStripe
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 BlueStripe solutions will be withdrawn from sale "in the near term," but support for existing customers will continue during this period.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.
