VMware Acquires Continuent

We are delighted to announce that VMware has acquired the assets of Continuent. The acquisition is a strong affirmation of Continuent's vision of enabling enterprise-class data management and data integration on standard database management system (DBMS) platforms in cloud as well as on-premises environments. This is a vision we describe as the “Continuent Tungsten Data Fabric.”

This acquisition offers concrete benefits to our current and future customers:

  • Business as Usual — The Continuent team and Continuent Tungsten product have transferred as a unit into VMware. We will continue to serve you on the same high level as before and offer the same features of data high availability, cross-site operation, and heterogeneous integration you depend on today.
  • Hybrid Operation — Additional focus on 100 percent portable, highly available data services that span on-premises data center or private cloud to public cloud environments.
  • High Availability and Disaster Recovery — Continued improvements in ability to offer solutions for high-availability, disaster recovery and multi-master operation.
  • Real-time Data Integration — Faster and more capable data integration between relational DBMS, NoSQL, and analytic systems including Hadoop and SQL data warehouses.
  • Excellent Support for VMware solutions — Great integration with VMware virtualization, networking, and storage products.
  • VMware Confidence and Long-term Stability — Addition of resources, including new staff and technology from VMware, to deliver innovative features and provide support to our rapidly increasing customer base.
