- January 24, 2018 - 9 Comments

2/8/18 Update: Pleased to announce that we have completed the acquisition of Skyport Systems. Welcome to Cisco!

I’m excited to share that today Cisco announced its intent to acquire Skyport Systems, Inc., a privately-held company providing cloud-managed, hyper-converged systems that run and protect business-critical applications. This acquisition will enable Cisco to utilize Skyport’s intellectual property, seasoned software and network expertise to accelerate priority areas across multiple Cisco portfolios. Cisco was also an investor in Skyport.

The Skyport Systems team will join the Data Center – Computing Systems Product Group led by Senior Vice President and General Manager Liz Centoni and the Service Provider – Networking Group led by Senior Vice President and General Manager Jonathan Davidson. The terms and purchase price of the acquisition are confidential.

  1. This is great news for Cisco and Skyport! Can't to see what's to come with this combined force.

    Good move ...

  5. Seems like great investment as enterprise customers struggle to manage their own cloud ecosystem of vendors in the multi-cloud world of today. Monitoring, managing and change management of cloud services are now the major pain point now that the move to cloud services has happened. Now customers seem to find more scalable methods to manage their multiple clouds.

  6. What a great team!

  7. An addition to our security portfolio. Great news.
