VMware’s 11-Month M&A Tear

VMware has been on an acquisition binge over the past 11 months, announcing plans to buy a total of seven companies including its August 2018 purchase of CloudHealth Technologies. The Uhana and Bitfusion acquisition announcements came just a week apart from each other this month.

This year, VMware closed the acquisition of software networking innovator Avi Networks in a move to bring the public cloud experience to the data center by creating the “industry’s only complete software-defined networking stack” built for the modern multi-cloud era. For a total price tag of $550 million, VMware acquired Kubernetes star Heptio in late 2018.

With the except of Heptio, the seven acquisitions -- which also includes application deployment specialist Bitnami and AetherPal – have had no financial terms attached to the deals. However, it is sufficient to say that VMware has spent well over $1 billion in acquisitions over the past 11 months as its strategic and operational relationship with Dell Technologies hits its stride.
