Microsoft acquires Cloudyn

Microsoft acquires Cloudyn to help improve Azure
Cloudyn joins Microsoft
This new acquisition aims to help the Redmond giant improve its cloud services, more precisely Microsoft Azure. Cloudyn's technology allows enterprise customers to optimize their cloud-related spending.

Earlier this week, Microsoft's Director of Program Management, Azure Security and Operations Management Jeremy Winter confirmed that the Redmond giant sealed a deal to acquire Cloudyn. According to his post on The Official Microsoft Blog, this company "helps enterprises and managed service providers optimize their investments in cloud services."

Cloudyn has been a Microsoft partner for a while, offering cost management services for Azure and other public cloud services, thus helping customers to improve their cloud efficiency. An undisclosed US-based Fortune 500 customer managed to achieve a 286 percent ROI in this field thanks to Cloudyn's support in accelerating its cloud adoption, reveals Jeremy Winter.

The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed. Microsoft also unveils that "Cloudyn capabilities will be incorporated into our product portfolio that offers customers the industry’s broadest set of cloud management, security and governance solutions." Since there is not much information about this right now, remains to see how will this move shape Azure and other Microsoft products in the years to come.

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.
