VMware Acquires Bitnami To Boost App And Cloud Capabilities

To boost its ability to package applications for easier deployment in the cloud, VMware acquired Bitnami. The San Francisco-based startup delivers full software stacks for popular open source solutions like WordPress, Drupal and Magento, including pre-configured applications, installers, databases, web servers and encryption tools.

Bitnami says it has more than 1.3 million deployments per month on every major cloud vendor including AWS, Google, Microsoft and Oracle with over 130 open source applications. In terms of channel benefits, Bitnami can be used by partners that operate clouds to create click-to-install application catalogues to bring clouds closer to the marketplaces offered by the likes of Amazon. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Bitnami will enable our customers to easily deploy application packages on any cloud— public or hybrid— and in the most optimal format — virtual machine (VM), containers and Kubernetes helm charts," said VMware's Milin Desai, general manager for cloud services; and Paul Fazzone, senior vice president for cloud-native apps in a blog post. “Bitnami will be able to augment our existing efforts to deliver a curated marketplace to VMware customers that offers a rich set of applications and development environments in addition to infrastructure software.”
