Shavlik Technologies has been a leading provider of easy-to-use cloud-based IT management solutions in the SMB market. Shavlik and VMware initially partnered to create VMware GO, allowing small businesses to deploy VMware vSphere with simplified installation and management. Over 200,000 registered users of VMware GO created more than 20,000 VMware hypervisors and 120,000 virtual machines.
With this acquisition, VMware can continue to focus on delivering centralized automated IT management with simplified deployment, allowing small businesses to take advantage of virtualization and cloud computing without needing the staff and skills available at larger enterprises. We can also further extend the ability of Managed Service Providers to offer automated remote management capabilities to small businesses.
