VMware to Acquire Application Management Firm

BusinessWire

Virtualization solution provider VMware announced an agreement to acquire B-hive Networks, maker of application performance management software.The company's release said that VMware will use the B-hive personnel and technology to offer "proactive performance management and service level reporting for applications running within VMware virtual machines -- on both servers and desktops."

According to VMware CTO Stephen Herrod, "B-hive?s agentless, virtual appliance-based approach goes beyond traditional monitoring approaches to proactively manage application performance to specified levels....For example, if B-hive identifies degradation in application response time, it can remediate the problem by automatically instructing VMware Infrastructure to adjust the resources allocated to the application or provision an additional virtual machine with an additional instance of the application. In conjunction with VMware?s automated IT service delivery and business continuity capabilities, B-hive?s service level management capabilities further deliver on the vision of an automated, always-on, virtual datacenter."

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.BusinessWire
