I’m excited to announce that we’ve completed our acquisition of CliQr Technologies Inc., a privately-held company that provides a cloud platform to model, deploy and manage applications across hybrid IT environments made-up of data centers, private and public clouds.
CliQr’s technology is very complementary with our data center strategy. CliQr will extend Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) application policy model beyond the network. This will allow ACI customers to automate end-to-end provisioning of infrastructure and deployment of applications onto any data center, private or public cloud environment.
I’m happy to welcome the CliQr team to Cisco. The CliQr leadership and engineering team joins the Insieme Business Unit. In the coming weeks, we expect to announce the availability of CliQr’s offerings on the Cisco price list, enabling our partners and customers to easily automate and manage application policies across their data center environment. Together, we look forward to making it easier for customers to move and manage their applications in the cloud.
