VMware’s acquisition of Kubernetes startup Heptio will help boost VMware’s credibility in the open source and Kubernetes markets. The key, for VMware, will be to balance its investment in new technology with serving the needs of its legacy customers.
Heptio was founded by Joe Beda and Craig McLuckie, two of the creators of Kubernetes, in 2016; the company provides products and training, support and professional services to help organizations deploy and operate Kubernetes. Terms of the acquisition, announced Tuesday, were not disclosed; the companies expect the deal to close in VMware Inc. (NYSE: VMW)’s Q4 2019, which ends February 1.
