Quest Software earlier this month announced the completion of its acquisition of privately held Surgient, a leader in 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.
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.
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.
