May 28, 2008 - VMware, Inc. entered into a definitive agreement to acquire B-hive Networks, Inc., a privately-held application performance management software company.

 

With this acquisition, VMware will leverage the B-hive team and technology to offer proactive performance management and service level reporting for applications running within VMware virtual machines on servers and desktops. In addition, B-hive’s R&D facility and team will form the core of VMware’s new development center in Israel.

 

Founded in 2005, B-hive has a solution that gives infrastructure groups visibility into application performance in virtual environments such as end-user transaction response time, virtual machine utilization and cross-virtual machine dependencies. The B-hive solution is designed to measure performance across multitier or service-oriented architecture applications that are distributed across clusters of ESX hypervisors and virtual machines.

 

"VMware has been a trailblazer in the industry and has given organizations a much better way to plan and execute their IT operations through virtualization, and we are excited to join this winning team," said Yoav Dembak, CEO and co-founder of B-hive. "As customers move from the physical to virtual, our combined solutions will provide even greater visibility into the performance of applications and make it possible to resolve a problem before it occurs. Our shared goal is to improve the end user experience and maximize the value of investments in VMware virtualization.”
