Nutanix announces intent to purchase Netsil

Cloud computing software company Nutanix Inc. announced it intends to purchase Netsil Inc. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Netsil is a San Francisco-based company founded in 2012. It offers an observability and monitoring platform for cloud apps running inside either containers or virtual machines. It is also the creator of the Netsil Application Operations Center, which helps DevOps teams gain visibility into services and their dependencies, without making code changes. The company has raised $5.7 million in funding, according to Crunchbase.

Containerized applications and microservices are difficult to monitor and secure using traditional management tools. As part of the acquisition, Nutanix intends to incorporate Netsil’s tools into its Enterprise Cloud OS platform to help pinpoint and resolve performance issues for container-based apps.

“Netsil’s innovative technology offers an original approach to simple yet comprehensive application discovery and operations management across multiple cloud environments and will be a powerful addition to Nutanix,” said Sunil Potti, chief product and development officer, Nutanix, in a statement. “Netsil, which can be consumed as a cloud-based service, and when combined with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software, gives both DevOps and IT teams the power to quickly deploy and operate applications with confidence, in any cloud, at any scale, while ensuring reliability, performance and security.”

This isn’t the first acquisition Nutanix has landed in recent memory. At the beginning of the month, Nutanix announced it had entered a definitive agreement to purchase cloud solutions provider Minjar, Inc. Nutanix said that Minjar’s technology would bolster its Nutanix Calm automation and lifecycle management product, as well as Xi Cloud Services, a native extension to the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software.

“Joining Nutanix gives Netsil’s technology a great opportunity to be a force multiplier,” said Harjot Gill, founder and CEO of Netsil. “Nutanix has built a very solid Enterprise Cloud OS platform, which when combined with Netsil’s real-time observability, becomes even more strategic when addressing a growing microservices market. We are really happy to be joining a company where Netsil’s capabilities will be used to their fullest.”
