DynamicOps develops cloud automation and management solutions. These solutions are designed to help enterprise IT organizations create scalable private, public and desktop cloud services in days from their existing technology systems and processes.

It was acquired by VMware in 2012.

Company history[edit]

DynamicOps had its origins in Credit Suisse. Its software was initially developed inside Credit Suisse’s Global Research and Development Group in 2005 to help the company address the operational and governance challenges of rolling out virtualization technology. In 2008, after having deployed and used the software to manage thousands of its virtual machines, Credit Suisse Ventures decided to form a company based on the technology and recruited Rich Krueger to form and lead a new company—DynamicOps. DynamicOps was incorporated on January 31, 2008 and publicly launch later that spring[1]—to further develop and market the product. Leslie Muller, who led the development effort at Credit Suisse, became the founder and CTO of DynamicOps. The company has raised a total of $27M in venture funding from Credit Suisse, Intel Capital,[2][3] Sierra Ventures,[4] and Next World Capital.

In July 2012, DynamicOps was acquired by VMware.[5]

Operations Virtualization™[edit]

Operations Virtualization[6] is a foundational technology for DynamicOps’ cloud offerings. Operations Virtualization is an abstraction layer between the multiple management systems that make up a cloud infrastructure and their consumers. It allows IT staff to apply management to the layers below without the layers above needing to know how or why.
