The hyper-converged infrastructure pioneer unveiled plans on Thursday to acquire Minjar, a company providing a platform with centralized cost control and visibility into public cloud workloads.

"We are looking forward to offering our customers the full breadth of Minjar's multi-cloud capabilities while deeply integrating them into our Enterprise Cloud OS," said Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development Officer at Nutanix, in a statement.

"Minjar is a pioneer that provides tangible benefits to enterprise customers on their multi-cloud journey … The experience and insights garnered from multiple cloud-native deployments have enabled Minjar to build a robust offering in Botmetric," Potti said. "Minjar's customer focus and philosophy of one-click simplicity is extremely well aligned with our own."

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Botmetric, along with Minjar’s other cloud solutions SmartAssist Assurance and SmartAssist Managed Cloud, help enterprises embrace the cloud effectively and optimize their multi-cloud environments for performance and cost, according to a release.

Nutanix also plans to use Minjar’s technology to bolster its Nutanix Calm automation and lifecycle management product, as well as Xi Cloud Services. Nutanix Calm and Botmetric can increase visibility into the cost of cloud deployments across multiple platforms, allowing enterprises to optimize which workloads run in which cloud, said Nutanix. It will also offer a real-time scan for cloud compliance designed to find risks and security violations so companies can identify and resolve potential cloud security threats before they turn into business challenges.
