Instaclustr to Acquire credativ to Enrich Open Source Data-Layer Services

Instaclustr, delivering reliability at scale through fully managed open source data technologies, is acquiring credativ, adding a rich collection of open source software and services to Instaclustr’s portfolio.

By acquiring credativ, Instaclustr gains a powerful and respected business with a like- minded commitment to fully open source data-layer technologies.

credativ expands the breadth and depth of Instaclustr’s open source capabilities by adding new technologies—such as PostgreSQL—and bolstering Instaclustr’s current offering.

credativ provides a comprehensive suite of technical expertise, services, and support to ensure successful implementation, operation, and optimization of key open source data-layer technologies for business applications.

In particular, credativ provides expertise and support for relational database PostgreSQL, Kubernetes, Debian, and other solutions critical to a modern enterprise infrastructure.

Like Instaclustr, credativ has deep experience driving customer data stack migration, automation, and cost optimization. Customers around the world rely on credativ’s services and active support to realize their IT goals through the use of powerful open source data-layer technologies.

Current customers of both companies will immediately benefit from the acquisition. Instaclustr is now better positioned to engage with organizations across Europe and will have an even greater presence and leading role within the open source community.

Furthermore, the acquisition will accelerate new additions to the Instaclustr Managed Platform that leverage credativ’s domain expertise.

“credativ brings a potent combination of particularly strong technical expertise across key open source data-layer solutions, and proven experience leading enterprises through future-proof implementations and digital transformations using those technologies,” said Peter Lilley, CEO of Instaclustr. “We’re incredibly excited to welcome credativ to our team and look forward to reaching more businesses with an ever-expanding suite of open source services and solutions. Our mission to enable the world’s ambitions through open source technologies has taken a big leap forward.”

Dr. Meskes, along with other top management, have accepted senior executive roles in the expanded group.
