VMware to acquire Shavlik Technologies
Posted on 17-May-2011 09:34. | Tags Filed under: News.



VMware, Inc has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Shavlik Technologies, a provider of easy-to-use, effective cloud-based IT management solutions for small and medium businesses (SMBs).

Shavlik Technologies provides a portfolio of on-premise and SaaS-based management solutions that enable SMBs to more effectively manage, monitor and secure their IT environments while addressing their unique needs when moving to virtual and cloud computing IT deployments. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. The acquisition is expected to be completed later this quarter, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Today’s announcement builds upon the successful relationship built between VMware and Shavlik via VMware GO, a joint SaaS offering assisting SMBs with rapid deployment and management of VMware vSphere.

“VMware continues to make investments to extend its leadership within the SMB market. With VMware vSphere Essentials and VMware Go, VMware is delivering tremendous value to hundreds of thousands of SMBs,” said Raghu Raghuram, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cloud Infrastructure and Management, VMware. “With the Shavlik acquisition, VMware will be able to provide simple to use and affordable management services developed to address the specific demands of SMBs.”

"It is an exciting time for us to be joining VMware as it builds on our expertise in delivering IT solutions to SMBs, an area we have been dedicated to for many years,” said Mark Shavlik, Chief Executive Officer, Shavlik Technologies. “The enthusiasm, creativity and operational excellence of our two companies will allow us to better serve our global customers and partners by accelerating IT management innovations.”

SaaS–based management solutions from Shavlik will create a valuable portfolio of solutions for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Solution Providers to better serve their SMB customers. VMware intends to further extend the ability of MSPs to offer automated, remote management capabilities to SMBs seeking additional value-added capabilities via their existing business partners.
