Private Cloud Automation Software Vendor Acquired By Quest

Quest Software : 12 August, 2010  (Company News)
Quest Software has bought Surgient to bring the management of secure private cloud infrastructures into the company's portfolio of secure software solutions
Quest Software has announced the completion of its acquisition of privately held Surgient, a provider of private cloud automation software. Surgient, located in Austin, Texas, will expand Quest virtualization management capabilities by enabling organizations to automate the deployment and management of secure private cloud infrastructures to gain business agility and reduce costs.

"As a customer of Surgient, we liked the company so much we bought it," said Doug Garn, CEO and president, Quest Software. "We are confident our customers will benefit from this impressive array of patented technologies and products, developed by some of the brightest people in the industry. We're simplifying how our customers implement and benefit from a private cloud infrastructure with the best management solutions on the market today."

Private Cloud Computing is emerging as a fundamental requirement for businesses. As a leading provider of cloud automation solutions, Surgient provides a patented and proven technology that supports heterogeneous hypervisor environments and diverse customer environments, including mid-market, enterprise, and managed service providers.

"The acquisition of Surgient puts Quest fully into the virtualization management fray," said Bernd Herzog, analyst, Virtualization Performance and Capacity Management at industry analyst firm The Virtualization Practice. "Very soon, we expect to see the Surgient private cloud management assets combined with the full Foglight performance management assets - and the rest of the Vizioncore product suite - to create what will probably be the single most formidable third party virtualization management offering."

Quest will continue to market and sell the Surgient cloud platform and offer customers the company's popular Cloud Express, which provides a private cloud of 30 CPUs in 30 days. Quest will share details of its virtualization and cloud management roadmap on Aug. 31, at VMworld in San Francisco. For a full demonstration of all Quest virtualization and cloud offerings at VMworld, please visit us in Quest booths 1113 and 1213 in Moscone Center South.
