VMware officials continue to build up their cloud computing capabilities through acquisitions, this time buying the Log Insight big data analytics platform from small technology vendor Pattern Insight. Log Insight is designed to collect and analyse in real time the massive amounts of machine-generated data created in cloud and virtualised environments, and quickly let IT administrators know what is causing problems that are found.
The deal follows more recent acquisitions by VMware as executives look to build up the company’s cloud capabilities to compete with the likes of Google, Amazon and Microsoft. In July, VMware announced it was buying DynamicOps, whose cloud automation technology offers multi-cloud, multi-platform and multi-vendor management capabilities.
