Virtustream Acquires Enomaly
— Virtustream on Thursday announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Enomaly, Inc. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and the deal is expected to close in Q1 of 2012.
Enomaly is credited with pioneering the first cloud brokerage, SpotCloud, which provides a marketplace for buyers and sellers to exchange available compute and storage capacities. Virtustream will make two key enhancements to SpotCloud. First, the company will delay the production launch of SpotCloud 1.0, which is currently in beta release with thousands of registered users, so as to enhance its robustness and security. Secondly, Virtustream will significantly enhance SpotCloud’s workload exchange with the xStream Infrastructure Unit (IU). The IU, invented and patented by Virtustream, is a cloud atomic element - an extensible container of compute, memory, bandwidth and IOPS, smaller than a virtual machine, which enables highly efficient cloud management for customers and industry leading service level guarantees.
