Microsoft acquires software container company Deis

Microsoft Snatches Up Deis To Boost Azure Kubernetes Tech
Microsoft gave its cloud-based application container portfolio a significant boost today by acquiring Deis, a San Francisco-based software startup specializing in Kubernetes, the open-source container management and orchestration system. Azure Stack aims to bring numerous features of Microsoft's Azure cloud computing platform into the enterprise data center and with this update, it's getting some big features that aim to deliver a better deployment and operational experience.
In his announcement today, Scott Guthrie, executive vice president of Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise Group, suggested that the buy will help add momentum to the Redmond, Wash., software and cloud services provider's open-source initiatives. In its early days, the company focused on Docker and ContainerOS but following its acquisition by Engine Yard, it switched its attention to Kubernetes.
The open source experience will be important for Microsoft which at its heart is an enterprise subsisting in an environment that is increasingly preferential to open source technologies.
Neither Microsoft nor Deis announced a sale price for the acquisition. Financial terms of the deal have not been publicly disclosed.
For a starter, Kubernetes is a Google-backed open source container deployment and management tool that provides automated deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers.
Tools like Deis's Workflow, Helm, and Steward are supposed to ease the complex process of managing multi-container applications. Indeed, Deis will continue working on its open source projects which are brought in use by the likes of Mozilla, CloudMine and SocialRadar.
According to Microsoft, the company has seen explosive growth in both interest and deployment of containerised workloads on Azure. This move is not just another buyout - it forms part of a bigger move in the cloud computing world - but there is much significance to it because the one purchasing it is Microsoft. "As a Microsoft shop, Azure is our first choice for containers, and marrying it with Kubernetes would be a really interesting thing".
Containers have been at the forefront of cloud transformation in recent years, and for good reason: Container technologies let organizations more easily build, deploy and move applications to and from the cloud.
