History edit

DynamicOps was founded and incorporated on January 31, 2008 by Richard Krueger (CEO and Founder), and publicly launched later that spring.[1] The company leveraged technology developed by Credit Suisse's Global R&D group. Leslie Muller, who led that development effort while at Credit Suisse became the co-founder and CTO of DynamicOps. The company had raised a total of $27M in venture funding from Credit Suisse, Intel Capital,[2][3] Sierra Ventures,[4] and Next World Capital. Additionally, DynamicOps had a multi-year licensing and distribution agreement with Dell,[5] in which DynamicOps software was a component of Virtual Integrated System solution.

In July 2012, DynamicOps was acquired by VMware for a price ranging from $100 to $150 million.[6][7]
