Microsoft Acquires Cloud Analytics Company

Application Development & Modernization, Cloud, Data Center

Microsoft has acquired the cloud analytics firm Cloudyn in an effort to expand cost-control offerings for Azure users. Cloudyn, launched back in 2011, produces cloud monitoring software compatible with Azure, Amazon Web Services and Google.

Cost containment is a pressing issue for enterprise cloud users. In fact, one study showed that budgeting is the most important variable among businesses with mature cloud-based infrastructure. As the marketplace for the technology grows and deployment strategies such as the multi-cloud methodology gain steam, the demand for cloud monitoring tools is likely to grow.

With the Cloudyn acquisition, Microsoft has positioned itself well for this possible outcome.
