Apple has acquired the company FoundationDB, specialized in the management of NoSQL databases at a hyper-professional level. We are talking about a company that charges $ 150 per hour for the rental of a set of servers optimized for the treatment of huge databases that must be accessed very quickly, even when there are problems.
The company is only five years old and it is assumed that by buying it Apple is looking for the acquisition of talents that will improve the performance and administration of its iCloud server system.
Apple has answered the usual, our company buys small businesses from time to time but we do not inform of the purpose of the acquisition when TechCrunch has asked them about it. This confirms the purchase of a small company by Apple. FoundationDB had recently secured more than $ 22 million in funding for the development of its rapid database systems. Obviously now they will have many more economic resources to carry out their task, hopefully that will translate into fewer drops in the services of iCloud or iTunes.
