Nutanix inks agreement to buy Netsil

Listed enterprise cloud computing company Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX) has secured an agreement to acquire application discovery and operations management vendor Netsil.

The closing of the acquisition is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Netsil is the San Francisco-based maker of the Netsil Application Operations Centre, which helps enterprises gain complete visibility into all their applications and services and their complex interdependencies with no code changes required. Netsil’s algorithm-based and non-invasive technology is claimed to help achieve visibility and control at scale while keeping application transparency.

“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.

“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.”

Harjot Gill, founder and chief executive of Netsil, said joining Nutanix gave Netsil’s technology a “great opportunity to be a force multiplier”.

“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.”
