VMware Adds to Cloud Portfolio by Acquiring Bitnami

VMware announced its acquisition of Bitnami, an eight-year-old company that sells software which packages applications so they can run on cloud providers and in private data centers. The deal is the latest move by VMware to support an industry trend known as “multi-cloud,” in which companies use services from multiple cloud providers. Other examples include VMware’s acquisition of Heptio last fall and its cloud partnerships with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft. 

Bitnami has raised just $1.1 million from a group of investors that includes Y Combinator and Streamlined Ventures. In its own blog post, Bitnami explained that it had begun the process of raising additional capital in order to hire more salespeople.

But it opted to sell to VMware because that company’s goals were similar to its own.
