The acquisition also included CloudCredo subsidiary stayUp, which is a log analysis technology company for Cloud Foundry services. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Palo Alto, Calif.-based Pivotal, which is a member of the EMC Federation, was founded in 2013 with the goal of helping large organizations become more agile. General Electric made a $105 million investment in Pivotal the same year it was founded.
Based in London, CloudCredo’s customer base is largely in Europe. Pivotal benefits from the deal by getting an expanded European presence and by inheriting CloudCredo’s customer list.
Dell also could be a beneficiary from the CloudCredo deal once its $67 billion acquisition of EMC, which was announced in October, is complete. Dell founder and CEO Michael Dell mentioned Pivotal during Dell World in October. He said Dell customers would be able to tap into Cloud Foundry and would have access to EMC’s Pivotal Labs, which he said has assisted practically every successful Web-scale company in Silicon Valley, to help them with software development projects.
CloudCredo has worked with Pivotal for the past three years. CloudCredo will continue to be based in London, and all 20 of its employees now work for Pivotal, according to a Pivotal spokesperson.
