VMware Acquires Dunes Technologies

VMware, Inc., the virtualization leader, today announced it has acquired Dunes Technologies, a company that provides IT process orchestration software for virtual environments.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.  The announcement was made at VMworld 2007.

"As customers move toward large-scale virtual infrastructure deployments, they need solutions that allow them to maintain control over a growing number of virtual machines," said Raghu Raghuram, vice president of products and
solutions at VMware. "Dunes has developed a powerful orchestration platform that will allow us to automate the entire virtual machine lifecycle from requisition to de-commissioning, while complementing existing VMware management and automation solutions such as VMware Lab Manager and the recently announced VMware Virtual Desktop Manager."

"We are pleased to be joining with VMware," said Stefan Hochuli Paychere, co-founder and CTO of Dunes. "As organizations continue to standardize on virtual infrastructure, they must have automation solutions that increase the
efficiency of its management.  With our products, VMware customers will be able to implement best practice operational processes for virtual infrastructure and ensure strict compliance with corporate IT standards and policies."

Founded in 2001, Dunes Technologies has been financed and developed under the leadership of Affentranger Associates. Dunes Technologies is based in Lausanne, Switzerland with offices in Stamford, CT. For more information about Dunes, visit
