NetApp has a signed a definitive agreement to acquire cloud optimisation platform vendor CloudCheckr, for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition will be used to bolster Spot by NetApp’s FinOps offerings by combining critical cost visibility and reporting from the CloudCheckr platform with continuous cost optimisation and managed services from Spot by NetApp.
With CloudCheckr, the Spot by NetApp portfolio will provide comprehensive cost visibility, analysis, management, and optimisation, which NetApps says helps enterprises and MSPs continuously monitor their cloud infrastructure resources.
“By adding cloud billing analytics, cost management capabilities, cloud compliance and security to our CloudOps platform through the acquisition of CloudCheckr, we are enabling organisations to deploy infrastructure and business applications faster while reducing their capital and operational costs,” said Anthony Lye, executive vice president and general manager of NetApp’s Public Cloud Services business unit. “This is a critical step forward in our FinOps strategy as well as an acceleration of our overall CloudOps leadership. Simply put, NetApp continues to empower customers to achieve more cloud at less cost.”
The acquisition of CloudCheckr complements and expands the Spot by NetApp portfolio to create an industry-leading suite of CloudOps services and builds on the company’s recent acquisition of Data Mechanics, NetApp said.
“The combination of Spot by NetApp and CloudCheckr will create a suite of highly complementary and synergistic multi-cloud infrastructure management solutions for our customers and partners,” said Tim McKinnon, CEO of CloudCheckr. “The CloudCheckr team is thrilled to be joining NetApp, and to help advance the company’s leadership in the FinOps space.”
