EMC to acquire Configuresoft
Configuresoft is moving from OEM partner to being completely integrated into the EMC fold
EMC has announced the acquisition of Configuresoft, a privately-held server and compliance management software provider.
The Massachusetts-based technology giant anticipates the deal will close this month – subject to customary closing conditions – though the financial terms have not been disclosed.
“Server configuration and change management are among the top challenges faced by IT. With Configuresoft, we’re gaining market-leading server configuration management solutions, giving customers the power they need to fully automate the data center in compliance with new physical and virtual best practice policies,” said Mohammed Amin, regional manager for the Middle East, North West Africa and Turkey at EMC.
EMC already had an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agreement in place with Configuresoft that was forged in the middle of last year. Configuresoft’s Enterprise Configuration Manager is already sold as EMC Server Configuration Manager, with a similar arrangement for the Colorado-based company’s configuration analytics software.
“Becoming part of EMC is the right move at the right time – giving us the financial and technology resources of a proven leader in information management to take our market leading solutions to the next level,” said Alex Goldstein, CEO of Configuresoft.
When the agreement is finalised, Configuresoft is expected to become a part of the Resource Management Group at EMC and – according to the company’s website – currently has over 400 customers worldwide.
“With the addition of Configuresoft solutions to our broad family of IT management software, EMC now offers the strongest and most complete combination of server, storage, and network configuration automation tools on the market today,” added EMC’s Amin.
