Google announced on Tuesday its intent to acquire Alooma, an Israeli hi-tech company described as a leader in data migration.
Alooma helps enterprise companies streamline database migration in Google’s cloud with an innovative data pipeline tool that enables them to move their data from multiple sources to a single data warehouse.
“The addition of Alooma, subject to closing conditions, is a natural fit that allows us to offer customers a streamlined, automated migration experience to Google Cloud, and give them access to our full range of database services,” Google stated.
“We’re also looking forward to adding to our growing Google Cloud footprint in Israel, which includes the Velostrata team we added last summer,” the tech giant added.
Alooma’s founders Yoni Broyde and Yair Weinberger stated they were “thrilled to share that Alooma has entered into an agreement to join Google Cloud, subject to customary closing conditions.”
The two founded Alooma in 2013 and are graduates of the IDF’s prestigious Talpiot program.
The Talpiot program is an elite IDF training program for recruits who have demonstrated outstanding academic abilities in the sciences and leadership potential. Graduates pursue higher education while serving in the army, and they use their expertise to further IDF research and development in technological leadership positions.
