Nuremberg/ Augs­burg — Nure­m­­berg-based IT moni­to­ring specia­list Paess­ler AG (“Paess­ler”) has acqui­red all shares in Augs­­­burg-based start-up Qbilon. The parties have agreed not to disc­lose the volume of the deal.

The start-up was foun­ded in 2019 by Dr. Mela­nie Langer­meier, Dr. Simon Lohmül­ler, Dr. Thomas Dries­sen and Dr. Julian Kien­ber­ger as part of an EXIST rese­arch trans­fer project at the Univer­sity of Augs­burg and will conti­nue to be head­quar­te­red in Augs­burg after the sale.

With its IT visi­bi­lity plat­form, Qbilon enables the inte­gra­tion of a wide range of data sources, inclu­ding cloud plat­forms such as AWS or Azure, IT moni­to­ring and manage­ment solu­ti­ons such as Paess­ler PRTG or Dyna­trace, and virtua­liza­tion tools such as vSphere. Custo­mers can also import gene­ric data such as CSV or JSON to easily inte­grate older infor­ma­tion. For compa­nies, this means full trans­pa­rency of their entire IT envi­ron­ment and more resi­li­ence in their IT opera­ti­ons, with the choice between cloud and on-premi­­ses solu­ti­ons. Qbilon’s custo­mers include major compa­nies in the auto­mo­tive, utili­ties and manu­fac­tu­ring industries.

Since its foun­da­tion in 1997, Paess­ler has been provi­ding moni­to­ring solu­ti­ons for compa­nies of diffe­rent indus­tries and sizes, ranging from small busi­nesses and medium-sized compa­nies to large corpo­ra­ti­ons. With its product, the company reaches more than 500,000 users in around 170 count­ries and curr­ently has 350 employees from more than 25 countries.
