When two become one: Netlify acquires Gatsby
Gatsby Inc. has been acquired by Netflify. Terms were not disclosed, and the announcement was posted on Gatsby's website.
Gatsby and Netlify have been in coopetition since late 2019 when Gatsby Cloud launched. Since then, Gatsby have followed a Vercel-like approach, positioning Gatsby Cloud as the best place to build, deploy, and host GatsbyJS websites and applications.
Through the acquisition, Netlify will add Valhalla Content Hub to their list of products and features - complementing Netlify's other acquisitions, including OneGraph.
GatsbyJS is one of the more popular Jamstack frameworks, having earned over 50,000 GitHub stars and a community of almost 4,000 contributors. Well known brands including IBM and Little Caesars lean on Gatsby to power their websites.
Netlify was founded by Christian Bach and Matt Biilmann in 2014 and raised over $212 million in venture funding from a variety of investors including Kleiner Perkins, Andreesen Horowitz, Bessemer Venture Partners, and EQT.
