Search giant Google has acquired Talaria, a small company that was building a dynamic web application server, for an undisclosed amount. Over the past two years, Talaria had been powering some of the most popular sites on the Internet with its technology that promised significant scalability and performance gains.

Talaria said it would be joining Google's Cloud Platform team, which would allow it to reach an even wider audience. The small company was in a private beta when Big G decided to swoop in and purchase it. Talaria's offering was billed as a drop-in replacement for scripting engines, requiring no modifications to source code so it would appeal to developers.

The acquisition was announced on Talaria's homepage.
