DigitalOcean Holdings announced the acquisition of Nimbella, a serverless platform provider. The acquisition expands DigitalOcean’s capabilities into the rapidly growing function-as-a-service (FaaS) market and will add an additional serverless compute offering to complement the company’s existing Infrastructure-as-a-Serviice (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings, which target developers in small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

Serverless enables rapid development and deployment, allowing businesses to significantly reduce development costs and increase productivity without sacrificing performance to support their use case.

Nimbella was designed specifically to address the challenges developers face in adopting serverless computing. Nimbella builds on Kubernetes and Apache OpenWhisk, both of which are mature production-ready open source projects

“Serverless computing is the next evolution of cloud that further removes the need for developers to manage complex infrastructure. We are excited to have Nimbella join DigitalOcean to address specific needs often requested by our customers and fills a gap in the current serverless offerings in the market,” said Yancey Spruill, CEO at DigitalOcean. “People want to access the benefits of serverless capabilities without a significant learning curve and they want functionality and pricing that is easy to understand and predictable. Nimbella provides all of this with the same simplicity and open source software standards that are core value propositions for DigitalOcean.”

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed and there is no change to DigitalOcean’s 2021 financial outlook as a result of the acquisition. DigitalOcean plans to fully integrate the Nimbella serverless offering and launch the product under the DigitalOcean brand in the first half of 2022
