Microsoft confirms it’s buying Israeli cloud-monitoring startup Cloudyn

Microsoft confirms it’s buying Israeli cloud-monitoring startup Cloudyn. Microsoft has confirmed previous reports that it’s buying Israeli cloud-monitoring and analytics startup Cloudyn. It’s all about improving cloud performance and efficiencies, with companies gaining access to real-time data across various operational and financial metrics. Cloudyn has raised more than $20 million since it was founded, including an $11 million round back in 2015, and it already claims some big-name clients including Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Ticketmaster. It’s worth noting here that Cloudyn already claimed Microsoft as a partner, working with its Azure cloud computing service, however it also works with a number of competing public clouds including Amazon’s AWS and Google’s Cloud. There is no official word on whether Cloudyn will continue to support all existing cloud service providers, but one of the statements (emphasis ours) suggests that it will — we have reached out for clarification on this point. “The Cloudyn solution will be incorporated into Microsoft’s product portfolio – offering customers the industry’s broadest set of multi-cloud management, security and governance solutions,” said Cloudyn CEO Sharon Wagner, in a statement. Since taking over as CEO in 2014, Satya Nadella has spearheaded Microsoft’s increased push into the cloud — “the intelligent cloud platform” has been one of its three key investment areas. Nadella was Microsoft’s former head of cloud and enterprise group before rising to CEO, so this refocused mission didn’t come as a major surprise. “This acquisition fits squarely into our commitment to empower customers with the tools they need to govern their cloud adoption and realize the strategic benefits of a global, trusted, intelligent cloud,” noted Jeremy Winter, Microsoft’s director of program management for Azure security and operations management.
