Red Gate Acquires Cerebrata

Red Gate acquires Cerebrata

Two companies with singular vision unite in Windows Azure market

CAMBRIDGE, UK, October 26, 2011 – Red Gate announced today that it has acquired Cerebrata, the maker of user-acclaimed tools for developers building on the Microsoft Windows Azure platform. The agreement brings together two companies that share a user-first philosophy and a passion for tools that transform the way developers work.

“We used Red Gate’s .NET tools internally to build Cerebrata products and I’ve seen the resources they dedicate to creating the ultimate user experience,” says Gaurav Mantri, Cerebrata’s founder and head of technology. “Working with a similar user base, shared values, and complementary technical expertise, we can expand and enrich the Windows Azure market.”

Same team, new resources

Cerebrata will continue to operate its own web site and the entire development team will be kept in place for the foreseeable future.

“Cerebrata will continue to be run as Gaurav’s citadel,” says Luke Jefferson, Red Gate’s Windows Azure product manager. “We want to tap into his incredible technical knowledge and help his team by automating processes and providing our user-experience expertise.”

New products on the way

Cerebrata is rewriting its three core products, with new versions of Azure Diagnostic Manager and Cloud Storage Studio slated for release in January 2012. Shortly after, Cerebrata will release an all-in-one tool called Azure Management Studio – a single product that will handle storage, applications, diagnostics and other critical tasks for Azure developers.

Excitement among users

Users familiar with the two companies are excited about what’s ahead for this collaboration.

“As a user of both companies’ tools, I’m excited about this combination of Cerebrata’s leading-edge products with Red Gate’s proven track record for delivering high-quality, easy-to-use tools,” says James Smith, head of software development at Adactus, a provider of customized software development services for eBusiness and eCommerce. “I believe that using Cerebrata/Red Gate tools will continue to yield major benefits for our business.”
