Red Hat buys OpenStack integrator eNovance to boost skills base
Wed 18 Jun 2014
OpenStack champion Red Hat is buying one of the movement’s leading integration services companies, eNovance,
The main attractions of the French eNovance is its systems integration capabilities which, Red Hat reckons, will help it meet what it sees as a “growing demand for enterprise OpenStack consulting, design and deployment”, and its domain expertise in telecommunications.
The two companies already partner installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform with some joint customers and this May 2014, they extended the relationship “to drive network functions virtualization (NFV) and telecommunications innovations into OpenStack”.
The deal is for €50m in cash and €20m in shares.
