SAN JOSE, CA — Feb. 23, 2022 — NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), a global, cloud-led, data-centric software company, today announced that it has acquired Fylamynt, a venture-backed, innovative CloudOps automation technology company that enables customers to build, run, manage and analyze workflows securely in any cloud with little to no code. Financial details of the transaction are not being disclosed.
Organizations moving to and operating in the cloud need to be able to operate at speed and code their infrastructures. Applications must integrate with the services and workflows across their cloud environments. As the number of services and workflows increase, developing and maintaining these integrations and automations quickly becomes expensive, complex and time-consuming, requiring site reliability engineering (SRE) resources. Fylamynt addresses these challenges with its innovative low code, no code technology for cloud automation, enabling DevOps and SREs to scale, optimize and maintain their cloud operations at a fraction of the cost.
“As NetApp has continued to establish itself as a leader in the cloud, the native integration of Fylamynt with Spot by NetApp will allow organizations to rapidly and reliably deploy Spot by NetApp services within their existing cloud environments,” said Anthony Lye, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Public Cloud Services at NetApp. “Customers and partners will benefit from Fylamynt’s low-code framework and cloud automation engine for DevOps and SREs. Combined with Fylamynt’s pre-built integrations and Spot’s full CloudOps portfolio, they will be able to accelerate, optimize and automate their cloud operations infrastructure. This strategic acquisition accelerates NetApp’s overall CloudOps leadership and empowers customers to continue to enjoy more cloud at less cost”
The acquisition of Fylamynt builds on NetApp’s momentum and investment to grow the Spot by NetApp portfolio of leading CloudOps multi-cloud infrastructure management services. Over the last two years, the company’s strategic acquisitions to expand Spot by NetApp’s portfolio include CloudHawk for security and compliance, Data Mechanics for data analytics and machine learning workloads in the cloud, and CloudCheckr for cloud cost management.
“Fylamynt built a suite of technologies designed to automate every part of a cloud workflow,” said Dr. Pradeep Padala, Co-Founder and CEO, Fylamynt. “With our common vision to help teams deploy and run at cloud speed, we’re excited to integrate our modern cloud automation capabilities into the Spot by NetApp portfolio to ultimately democratize automation for every enterprise.”
