Virtualisation software specialist, VMware is to acquire Thinstall, a privately-held application virtualisation software company to expand its desktop virtualisation capabilities. It has also acquired services-related assets from Foedus, a provider of virtualisation technologies and services.
VMware says the acquisition of Thinstall will enable its customers better provision, deploy and update desktop environments. It intends to leverage Foedus' application and desktop virtualisation services expertise to help its partners expand their virtualisation services business. Foedus' remaining assets, including the company's sales and marketing organisations, were acquired earlier this month by GreenPages Technology, a US consultative IT solutions provider and VMware authorised consultant (VAC) partner.
