Red Hat Acquires Makara Amid Cloud Services Provider Push

Red Hat has acquired Makara, which develops software for managing applications in the cloud. The move could strengthen Red Hat’s Cloud Foundations, platform as a service (PaaS) and virtualization strategies. And yes, there are some key implications for channel partners as well. Here’s The VAR Guy’s perspectives.

According to the official Red Hat statement:

“Makara provides solutions to enable organizations to deploy, manage, monitor and scale their applications on both private or public clouds. Customers facing issues in moving applications to the cloud and managing them efficiently can benefit from Makara’s solutions for scaling, rightsizing, rollback and monitoring. By integrating the JBoss Enterprise Middleware infrastructure with Makara’s Cloud Application Platform, Red Hat can offer a more comprehensive PaaS solution that allows organizations to quickly transition their applications to both public and private clouds with minimal modifications.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
