Hewlett-Packard, which is in a bidding war with Dell for 3Par, said Thursday it acquired Stratavia, a database and application automation outfit.
The Denver-based Stratavia is privately held. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
HP said in a statement that the acquisition will be lumped into its software unit. Stratavia's software will be used to deploy, manage and configure enterprise databases, middleware and packaged apps.
In recent years, HP has either acquired or built numerous tools to automate applications and data centers. Stratavia's software will also be used in HP's cloud automation services.
Stratavia's various software products are designed to automate data centers. Other modules focus on automated content, audit trails and various integration points in the enterprise. Here are a few screenshots.
