Nutanix has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire San Francisco based application visibility specialist Netsiln, as part of a push to address growing complexity resulting from the rise in multi-cloud adoption.
Netsil offers a set of application discovery and operations management tools that enable improved observability in current distributed cloud environments. The closing of the acquisition is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The acquisition is the maker of the Netsil Application Operations Centre, an offering designed to help enterprises gain complete visibility into all their applications, services, and their complex interdependencies.
Nutanix said the addition of Netsil’s technology to its own Enterprise Cloud OS software allowed customers to access an extended range of secure applications, as well as identify and fix performance issues. The increasing take up of multi-cloud platforms has meant more complexity and an inconsistent approach to operations management, often leaving application owners in the dark, it added.
"Today’s businesses rely on applications that interact with thousands of services, yet IT administrators and DevOps teams struggle with the insight and control they need to map dependencies or monitor real-time application behaviour," said. Nutanix. "As popularity in microservices and containers grow, understanding all of the dependencies and the need for visibility become more critical."
“Netsil’s innovative technology offers an original approach to simple yet comprehensive application discovery and operations management across multiple cloud environments and will be a powerful addition to Nutanix,” said Nutanix chief product and development officer Sunil Potti. “Netsil, which can be consumed as a cloud-based service, and when combined with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software, gives both DevOps and IT teams the power to quickly deploy and operate applications with confidence, in any cloud, at any scale, while ensuring reliability, performance and security.”
“Joining Nutanix gives Netsil’s technology a great opportunity to be a force multiplier,” commented Netsil founder and CEO Harjot Gill. “Nutanix has built a very solid Enterprise Cloud OS platform, which when combined with Netsil’s real-time observability, becomes even more strategic when addressing a growing microservices market.
