Pivotal has acquired London-based CloudCredo, a privately-held Cloud Foundry deployment and services provider, along with CloudCredo subsidiary, stayUp, a log analysis technology company for Cloud Foundry.
With CloudCredo having a highly sought-after team of Cloud Foundry experts, its addition to Pivotal will better enable enterprise adoption of Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
“CloudCredo enhances Pivotal’s powerful next-generation portfolio of products and services by bringing extensive knowledge of deploying, running and customizing Cloud Foundry for some of the world’s largest and most admired brands,” said Rob Mee, CEO of Pivotal. “With this expertise, we can better help our customers transform their enterprises by embracing and leveraging Pivotal’s Cloud Native platform more quickly.“
“When we started CloudCredo, we were profoundly influenced by The Pivotal Way. It shaped our approach to modern software development, our culture promoting openness and doing things the right way, and passion for delivering differentiated value to our customers,” says Colin Humphreys, CloudCredo Co-Founder and CEO.“ Joining Pivotal allows us to operate at a global scale, overnight, and help the world's largest and most admired brands use software to transform their businesses and make an impact on the world.”
With the acquisition, CloudCredo will continue to operate in London and service its existing customers, with the mission to continue driving Pivotal Cloud Foundry growth across the world. With CloudCredo’s expertise, Pivotal will continue to better help its enterprise customers embrace and leverage the Pivotal Cloud Foundry Cloud Native platform more quickly and transform the way they build software.
“The pool of truly elite Cloud Foundry systems talent, in other words BOSH, in Europe is limited. So is the pool of services companies with a proven track record of moving the dial on training and management in cloud native development,” said James Governor, analyst and founder of RedMonk. “Pivotal gets both by acquiring CloudCredo.”
