Adds to cloud management arsenal.

VMware on Monday announced its acquisition of startup DynamicOps, whose management software handles provisioning of apps and services across heterogeneous cloud infrastructure.

DynamicOps, which started out as a spinoff from Credit Suisse’s IT unit, extends VMware's vCloud Director management capabilities to other vendor's public and private resource pools, Ramin Sayar, VMware's general manager of cloud infrastructure and management told CRN.

VMware customers will use vCloud Director to define multi-tenancy, and DynamicOps will coordinate the business logic and placement of which users get access to which resources.

"This brings the ability to govern and control the provisioning of apps and services across heterogeneous pools," Sayar said.

VMware intends to integrate DynamicOps with vFabric Application Director, the cloud-enabled application provisioning technology that debuted in February.

Integration with IT Business Management Suite, a set of VMware tools for tracking costs and service levels across different infrastructure pools and service providers, is also in the cards, said Sayar.

Terms of the DynamicOps deal weren't disclosed. Technology publication GigaOM, quoting unnamed sources, reported it is worth between $US100 million to $US150 million.
