HP buying Stratavia

I know I’m late, but this is too important to let pass by. So HP is buying Stratavia, as reported by TechcrunchIT. It will fit nicely with what used to be Opsware and now seems to be called HP Data Center Automation Center. Quite a blow for GridApp, who I hear worked a lot with Opsware. Wonder what’s in for them – wouldn’t be surprised if BMC decided they needed to bolster their DB automation portfolio…

Interesting space to watch. Does anybody know of other companies specialized in enterprise database automation or orchestration?
