MetricsHub Acquired By Microsoft

Bellevue-based cloud monitoring software firm MetricsHub, which was part of the Microsoft Accelerator, has been acquired by none other than Microsoft itself. Microsoft announced the acquisition late Monday, saying that the move will provide all of its Windows Azure customers with a free version of Metrics Hub's Active Cloud Monitoring service. MetricsHub develops software used for automating cloud performance management, specifically for Microsoft's cloud service, Windows Azure.
