Amazon Buys Cloud9
Cloud9, a San Francisco cloud computing startup that offers a Web-based integrated development environment (IDE), has announced that it has been acquired by Amazon Web Services (AWS). Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We’re excited to let you, our users and customers, be among the first to learn that we have been acquired by Amazon! We will be joining the Amazon Web Services family, and we’re looking forward to working together on terrific customer offerings for the future,” wrote Cloud9 co-founder Reuben Daniels. “In the meantime, you’ll still be able to depend on and continue to invest safely in Cloud9. It’s still business as usual—we’ll continue to work with our Ace Open Source community and to provide our innovative services to you and our hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide. Over time, we’ll work with AWS to do even more on your behalf.”
