The Israeli startup Ravello Systems has been acquired by Oracle, Business Insider reported on Monday.
According to the report, Oracle paid $500 million for Ravello, which develops tools for running enterprise workloads in public cloud environments.
Oracle confirmed that it had acquired Ravello, but did not disclose the terms of the deal.
Ravello Systems had partnerships with Amazon, Google and VMware to make it easy for companies to set up these dev/test labs on their clouds, according to Business Insider.
With the purchase, the Israeli company will be joining the part of Oracle's cloud business that hopes to take on Amazon, Microsoft, Google and IBM by letting corporate users rent computers, storage and networking.
Ravello CEO Rami Tamir confirmed the purchase, saying in a statement on the company’s website, “I am thrilled to share that Ravello Systems has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Oracle. The proposed transaction is subject to customary closing conditions. Upon closing of the transaction, our team will join the Oracle Public Cloud (OPC) organization and our products will become part of Oracle Cloud.
