Red Gate acquires Microsoft partner and BizSpark company Cerebrata

Red Gate this morning announced that it has acquired Cerebrata, an India-based maker of tools that helps developers build applications that run on Microsoft’s Windows Azure platform. In fact, Cerebrate is not only a Microsoft partner but also one of their BizSpark startups.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but we’re told Cerebrata will continue to operate its own website and services, and its development team will be kept in place for the ‘foreseeable future’.

Cerebrata is currently rewriting its three core products, with new versions of its ‘Azure Diagnostic Manager’ and ‘Cloud Storage Studio’, which are slated for release in early 2012.

Later, Cerebrata will launch 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.
