Oracle acquires Wercker

Oracle announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Wercker. Financial terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed.

Wercker allows organizations and their development teams to achieve continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) goals with micro-services and Docker. Wercker delivers a container-centric and cloud-native automation platform, that is comprised of their local command line interface (CLI), online SaaS platform and API.

Focussing on innovating and building great products
“Through our focus on container lifecycle management, Wercker’s mission has always been to enable developers to focus on what matters most: innovating and building great products and applications in a simple, repeatable and reliable way. Wercker empowers organizations and their development teams to achieve continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) goals with micro-services and Docker. This is brought to life through our container-centric and cloud-native automation platform comprised of our local command line interface (CLI), online SaaS platform and API”, Micha Hernandez van Leuffen, founder and CEO at Wercker, wrote in a blogpost.

“With this in mind, I am excited to share that Oracle today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Wercker. Wercker’s Docker-based platform has a strong, rapidly growing user base as companies, large and small, transition to container-based workloads. Developers will now have access to a strong Docker-based portfolio as part of Oracle PaaS and IaaS. We are excited to join Oracle and bring even more value to our customers as part of Oracle’s cloud computing platform.”

Customary closing conditions
The proposed transaction is subject to customary closing conditions. Until the transaction closes, both Oracle and Wercker will continue to operate independently.
