EMC and VMware-backed Pivotal has snapped up London-based based start-up CloudCredo for an undisclosed sum.
CloudCredo and its subsidiary use Cloud Foundry, an open-source software for building cloud applications from scratch.
James Governor, analyst and founder of RedMonk, said the pool of Cloud Foundry experts in Europe is limited. "So is the pool of services companies with a proven track record of moving the dial on training and management in cloud native development,” he said.
The Government Digital Service recently named Cloud Foundry as its preferred Platform-as-a-Service provider.
Rob Mee, CEO of Pivotal, said: “CloudCredo enhances Pivotal’s powerful next-generation portfolio of products and services by bringing extensive knowledge of deploying, running and customizing Cloud Foundry for some of the world’s largest and most admired brands."
CloudCredo said it had been working with Cloud Foundry from "day one" and has therefore has experience delivering service level agreements using Cloud Foundry.
CloudCredo will continue to operate in London and service its existing customers. ®
