Cloud infrastructure startup Stratoscale is expanding its database services platform. The Israel-based company has acquired database-as-a-service provider Tesora, the companies announced Monday.

Stratoscale is a cloud infrastructure startup that allows businesses to create Amazon Web Services (AWS) regions in their own data centers. Like Stratoscale, Tesora’s service is built on OpenStack and also runs on public, private or hybrid cloud servers.

The acquisition will allow Stratoscale to improve its managed database services support for customers, according to the company’s press release

“This acquisition is an important milestone in Stratoscale’s ability to help customers on their journey to the cloud,” Stratoscale CEO Ariel Maislos said in the release. “Organizations want to consume database as a service in a click-of-a-button. Stratoscale is happy to bring Tesora onboard to make this a reality.”

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. TechCrunch notes that Tesoro had raised $12.7 million since its founding in 2010.
