Quest Software has recently announced plans to acquire virtualization vendor Surgient for an undisclosed amount by the end of the third quarter. According to this Information Week report, with the acquisition, Quest will be able to move deeper into the self-provisioning and virtualized server management market where it plans to become an on-premises, private cloud software supplier.

Quest will move into the virtualized server management market with the Surgient Automation Platform.

"Quest already is a player in the database management and applications management fields. In May 2009, Surgient launched a virtual machine self provisioning product to complement its virtual lab manager for software test and development. The self-provisioning feature was designed to work with Microsoft's System Center Virtual Machine Manager and Hyper-V hypervisor, frequently used by developers."
