For the past 6 years, we’ve built a strong partnership with VMware to deliver dozens of our metric monitoring integrations to VMware vRealize® Operations customers. Over that time, the True Visibility Suite of products has become a critical piece of the vRealize Operations landscape. It unlocks the power of vRealize Operations for customers looking to manage their entire enterprise stack from a single tool. Due to the success of the relationship and a desire to provide a seamless process for our shared customers, VMware acquired the True Visibility Suite from Blue Medora and will move forward with True Visibility Suite as a VMware solution. We at Blue Medora couldn’t be happier to see this powerful collection of tools reach more VMware customers.
So what’s next for Blue Medora?
Over the past several years, apart from our VMware business, Blue Medora has launched a number of market defining products, most recently BindPlane. BindPlane is the first of its kind monitoring integration as a service platform. BindPlane brings hundreds of metrics and monitoring integrations to half a dozen monitoring platforms.

Commercial solutions such as Splunk are too costly and inflexible, and today’s existing open source solutions don’t scale at the log agent level,” explained Bekim Protopapa, observIQ CEO. “The observIQ open source log agent extends the Elastic stack with unmatched technical performance - up to 10x faster than other leading log agents...
Blue Medora is thrilled to announce that we have entered into a definitive agreement for the True Visibility Suite team and products to be acquired by VMware.

We are excited that our customers will benefit from tighter integration and a more seamless customer experience. Learn More >
