Wal-Mart Buys OneOps

@WalMart Labs also picked up three-year-old Mozilla spin-off Tasty Labs

@Walmart Labs, the Silicon Valley-based technology arm of Wal-Mart global e-commerce, has bought OneOps, which automates and accelerates processes related to environment management, application deployment and data center operations monitoring.

It's supposed to have re-imagined application management in the era of cloud computing and comes with a Platform-as-a-Service capability that should accelerate Wal-Mart's PaaS and private cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Iaas) strategies.

Wal-Mart will doubtless get cloud applications out of it. It said, "We are innovating on a very large scale, and OneOps brings us tools that will allow us to move even faster toward a global platform."

@WalMart Labs also picked up three-year-old Mozilla spin-off Tasty Labs, a social software connection start-up that might lead customers to the right product.

It was started by Joshua Schachter, who founded the social bookmarking service Delicious.

No financial terms were disclosed. Neither were all of WalMart's integration intentions. Some people thought they were merely so-called acqui-hires.

Wal-Mart has been experimenting with food subscription services.
