VMware acquires Bitnami to accelerate multi-cloud and enterprise deployments

May 16, 2019 / James Bourne

VMware has announced its intent to acquire Bitnami, a provider of application packaging and delivery, to help accelerate app delivery for multi-cloud use cases. Bitnami, based out of San Francisco, offers organisations the capability to deploy a multitude of applications through its libraries either natively or across a plethora of cloud providers. The company was a graduate of Y Combinator and was noted for a reticence on funding, only accepting a seed round in May 2013. This need for greater enterprise presence and the funding required to do it ultimately precipitated the move, the company said. “This was actually an easy decision and has to do with our shared vision for the future,” wrote co-founders Daniel Lopez and Erica Brescia in a blog post. “Our mission at Bitnami is to make awesome software available to everyone, everywhere… to make that software accessible to the largest number of users and developers possible.
