NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), a Sunnyvale, CA-based provider of hybrid cloud data services to manage applications and data across cloud and on-premises environments, acquired StackPointCloud, a provider of multi-cloud Kubernetes as-a-service and a contributor to the Kubernetes project.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
The combination of StackPointCloud with NetApp creates NetApp Kubernetes Service, a complete Kubernetes platform for multi-cloud deployments and a complete cloud-based stack for Azure, Google Cloud, AWS, and NetApp HCI.
NetApp Kubernetes Service is immediately available at cloud.netapp.com for customers to deploy and manage clusters and applications across the clouds.
By acquiring StackPointCloud, NetApp gains an advanced Kubernetes-as-a-service platform that directly supports the application orchestration capabilities of its Data Fabric. It will integrate with NetApp Cloud Volumes and Trident, enabling multi-cloud application orchestration with storage for stateful applications that use file-based protocols.
