Cisco Systems has announced its intent to acquire Service Catalog and Self Selvice Portol software provider newScale.
“newScale is a leading provider of software that delivers a service catalog and self-service portal for IT organizations to select and quickly deploy cloud services within their businesses.”
For those working in the cloud technology area this will not have come as a shock. To me it seems a very natural progression after Cisco acquired Tidal Software.
Check out the official announcement bellow:
Once Cisco get the Tidal and newScale software in line in such a way they can be seen as one cloud solution I think they will have a very credible competitor to the other cloud software on there hands. And along with Cisco’s UCS it gives a very attractive package to customer wanting an comprehensive cloud solution.
