Morpheus aims to give automation, abstraction and answers in the cloud era

Amid the industry-wide changes that will come with Broadcom Inc.’s acquisition of VMware Inc., Morpheus Data LLC is trying to provide companies with a simple solution to the increasing complexity of cloud computing.

“There’s a need for an abstraction and an integration point to take all those technologies and just help the customer move faster with less inefficiency,” said Brad Parks (pictured), chief product and marketing officer at Morpheus Data. “Enabling developer self-service is the core of our DNA.”

Parks spoke with theCUBE industry analysts John Furrier and Rob Strechay at VMware Explore 2023, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio. They discussed the growing complexity that companies face with a host of cloud technologies, from Amazon Web Services Inc. to VMware Inc., and Morpheus’s attempts to synthesize them for customers.

A crucial part of the cloud ecosystem

Morpheus is a self-service engine that helps businesses manage multiple on-premises data centers and clouds, with the intention of allowing developers and information technology staff to work together seamlessly. The company has grown 40% to 50% each year over the past several years, according to Parks, who emphasizes that Morpheus has built upon a history of platform engineering.

The company’s platform allows development teams to bypass the slowdown that happens when IT has to synthesize many competing technologies. When it comes to software and licensing changes, such as that of HashiCorp Inc., “We don’t manage it,” Parks said. “We don’t embed it. We don’t require it. We just make it better.”

In response to the impact of Broadcom’s pending acquisition of VMware on the industry ecosystem: “It just shines a light on the need for an abstraction layer” such as Morpheus, according to Parks. Departments in the same company may prefer different cloud technologies, but Morpheus aims to synthesize those disparate parts.

“We want to help pull the pieces together, get sticky and provide value to customers so that they can get back to the business of innovation and getting those developers doing what they do,” Parks said.
