(Ping! Zine) – HP today announced it has acquired Stratavia, a privately held database and application automation company based in Denver. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The acquisition of Stratavia will strengthen the HP Software and Solutions portfolio, adding deployment, configuration and management solutions for enterprise databases, middleware and packaged applications. The solutions will help clients simplify application deployment and management in hybrid IT environments, which consist of on-premise, off-premise, physical and virtual environments.
With Stratavia, HP clients can improve their time to market and increase agility for application deployment with a solution that ties the application development process to application deployment. HP clients will now have a comprehensive application automation solution that bridges the gap between application development and operational teams. The solution will support all aspects of the application life cycle, from modeling an application and releasing it into production, to ongoing management and the underlying infrastructure.
“As applications and IT environments become increasingly complex, organizations need to automate changes that range from large-scale application updates to simple one-line configuration updates with consistency and control,” said Bill Veghte, executive vice president, Software and Solutions, HP. “Stratavia’s database and application automation solutions, combined with HP’s leading Business Service Automation portfolio, give organizations a one-stop shop for infrastructure and application deployment management.”
Stratavia offerings also enhance the HP Cloud Service Automation solution by simplifying and automating the deployment of databases, middleware and packaged applications in cloud computing environments. Clients can now accelerate the delivery of applications and business services by building up from the infrastructure to include databases, middleware and web applications in a cloud environment.
“For eight years, Stratavia has been focused on developing application deployment automation solutions supporting tasks including provisioning, code deployment, configuration management, compliance, patching, as well as common user requests including migrations, refresh and back-ups,” said Thor Culverhouse, chief executive officer, Stratavia. “Combining Stratavia’s offerings with HP Server Automation will give clients a way to simplify and automate application deployment operations, minimizing downtime and mistakes.”
