The cloud company Drip has been acquired by Microsoft for $7.3bn, the company announced.
The acquisition is for a company that was acquired by Google in 2018, and has been growing steadily over the last several years.
Microsoft says it’s investing $7bn in the company, which was founded by former Google engineer Chris Vos, with some of that money coming from a sale of the company to Microsoft last year.
Drip was founded in 2013 as a side project of Vos.
It became a cloud-based services provider in 2014 and it has continued to build and grow its services over the past year.
It also developed a number of applications for Windows 10.
Microsoft said it will acquire the company in a $7 billion transaction.
“With Drip, we’ve developed the world’s first and only cloud-centric, integrated, high-performance, scalable, open-source enterprise cloud platform,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in a statement.
“We are excited to be investing in the future of our cloud platform and our community.”
