08 August 2016, USA :
Google stated that it has acquired cloud commerce platform vendor Orbitera on Monday. The acquisition positions the Internet giant to assist its partners in deploying rival cloud products in addition to its own Google Cloud Platform.
Orbitera has built a strong ecosystem of enterprise software vendors delivering software to multiple clouds. This acquisition will not only improve the support of software vendors on Google Cloud Platform, but reinforces Google’s support for the multi-cloud world. We’re providing customers with more choice and flexibility when it comes to running their cloud environment.
“Looking to the future, we’re committed to maintaining Orbitera’s neutrality as a platform supporting multi-cloud commerce,” says Google. “We look forward to helping the modern enterprise thrive in a multi-cloud world.”
Orbitera CEO Marcin Kurc assured customers that the service will not be changed and will continue to support existing cloud platforms in the wake of the acquisition.
“It quickly became clear to us that becoming a part of Google would lead to the best possible outcome for our customers,” he said in a blog post. “We will continue to deliver the products and services our customers rely on with the added scale that Google provides.”
Orbitera provides a commerce platform that makes buying and selling software in the cloud simple, seamless and scalable for all kinds of businesses, including independent software vendors, service providers and IT channel organizations.
