VMware acquires Dunes Technologies “virtual-machine management firm”

VMware said Tuesday it has bought Dunes Technologies, a company that makes software for managing several virtual machines, for an undisclosed amount.

Privately held Dunes, based in Lausanne, Switzerland, has developed a line as automation tools for coordinating the installation and management of virtual machines in corporate data centers.

A virtual machine is an instance of an operating system. By running several virtual machines on a single server, companies can consolidate several computing jobs onto a single server.

Dunes’ technology, which should complement virtualization specialist VMware’s existing management tools, is aimed at streamlining administration of several virtual machines, according to the company.

“Dunes has developed a powerful orchestration platform that will allow us to automate the entire virtual machine lifecycle from requisition to de-commissioning,” Raghu Raghuram, vice president of products and solutions at VMware, said in a statement.

The company announced the acquisition at its VMworld 2007 conference in San Francisco.
