VMware Closes Acquisition of Arkin

We’re excited to announce we’ve closed our acquisition of Arkin and I want to formally welcome the Arkin employees to VMware! This is an exciting time for both of our companies, and based on market feedback, there is a tremendous amount of energy around this acquisition from customers, partners and influencers. Here’s what IDC had to say about the acquisition:

“Enterprise customers see the value of SDDC and SDN, but they often struggle with how to deploy and operate the technologies most effectively. In acquiring Arkin, VMware will provide customers with greater visibility spanning physical and virtual infrastructure while also making NSX easier to deploy for use cases involving micro-segmentation.” – Brad Casemore, director of research for datacenter networking at IDC.

This acquisition has been almost universally applauded as a move that will help us accelerate momentum for VMware NSX and the Software-Defined Data Center. The addition of Arkin to VMware vRealize Suite is expected to translate into exponential value to our customers, including:

  • unprecedented visibility and insight to the datacenter traffic flows
  • faster deployments via micro-segmentation planning; and,
  • significantly lower time to resolution post deployment across virtual and physical layers, leveraging constructs like time-machine, natural language search and contextual analytics.
