Cisco Acquires Virtuata; Secures Virtual-machine Data
The privately held company's technology helps to isolate multiple tenants of a data center or cloud environment, Cisco says.
Cisco has acquired Virtuata, a privately held developer of technology for securing virtual-machine data in multi-tenant data centers, the company said Monday.
Virtuata helps to isolate each virtual machine from others in the same virtualized data center or cloud environment, Cisco said. It can help to address the security concerns of enterprises or service providers that want to host multiple customers, departments or applications in a single infrastructure. Cisco said the acquisition complements its mission to help customers create unified data centers.
The acquisition was announced in a post on Cisco's official blog. The purchase price was not disclosed. The former Virtuata team will join Cisco's Data Center Group, led by David Yen. Virtuata was based in Milpitas, California, nearby Cisco's hometown of San Jose.
Once a networking specialist, Cisco is now trying to build complete data-center infrastructures through partnerships, acquisitions and internal development, competing against system vendors such as Hewlett-Packard and IBM.
