Cisco Announces Intent to Acquire CliQr
March 1, 2016
My co-founder Tenry Fu and I built CliQr to provide a uniquely easy and powerful way to make cloud computing simple and application-centric – a platform to model, deploy and manage the entire lifecycle of applications onto any data center or private or public cloud environment. For the past five years we have delivered on our vision by developing and deploying our CloudCenter platform for our worldwide enterprise-class customers to manage their move to today’s hybrid IT environments. The experiences we have created with our customers, employees and partners have been pretty incredible.
Today we’re taking the next step toward our vision of unleashing the potential of the ever-changing cloud and related hybrid IT landscape by entering an agreement to be acquired by Cisco. We share a common vision and great product synergy that drives application relevancy throughout disparate and ever-changing IT environments. Together we are truly poised to transform the datacenter. When CliQr becomes part of the Cisco team, we will make an even bigger impact in driving efficiencies, security and management of hybrid cloud IT for our mutual customers.
We want to thank everyone who has helped us along the way—our customers, partners, investors, advisors and employees. We are excited for what the future holds and we’ll be sharing those details over the coming weeks and months. In interim, it will be business-as-usual for CliQr.
