Cisco to Boost Cloud Offering with newScale, Inc. Purchase

Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) reports that it intends to purchase newScale Inc., a firm focused on “software that delivers a service catalog and self-service portal for IT organizations to select and quickly deploy cloud services within their businesses.”

The privately-held, California-based newScale helps customers “initiate the provisioning of their own systems and infrastructure on an as-needed basis.”

“Cloud computing represents a major shift in the evolution of the Internet, and as more customers migrate from traditional IT infrastructures, the need for rapid self-provisioning and efficient management becomes increasingly critical, ” said Parvesh Sethi, senior vice president of Cisco Services. “With the acquisition of newScale, Cisco will be able to accelerate the deployment of cloud services through a service catalog and self-service portal that allows customers to easily manage their IT infrastructures.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
