Dell Technologies completed its first acquisition of the year with the purchase this week of Cloudify, an Israeli-based multi-cloud management platform and a provider of environment-as-a-service software.
The deal – which is reportedly worth $100 million – puts a powerful DevOps technology under Dell’s umbrella.
Cloudify can spin up unlimited copies of an organization’s entire infrastructure stack, creating custom IT environments – which includes not just applications, but any hybrid-cloud environment the applications are deployed on. These modular environments eliminate one of the biggest bottlenecks organizations face with continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines by giving developers a sandbox to test large deployments without downtime.

Dell initially disclosed the deal in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday. Dell released a short statement Wednesday, saying it had completed the deal. Cloudify is a privately-held company that was employee owned.
“Dell Technologies announced that it has completed the acquisition of Cloudify,” a Dell spokesperson said. “This transaction allows Dell to continue to innovate our edge offerings.”
Cloudify has a free version that works with all cloud vendors, as well as a “starter” version for $1,000 per month, and “pro” version that goes for $4,750 per month, according to the company’s website. The paid versions include integrations with virtual machiness and Kubernetes.
