Cisco strikes while SDN iron is hot - acquires networking start-up

“With agility and automation as persistent drivers for IT teams, the need to simplify application deployment and build the cloud is crucial for the data centre."

Networking giant Cisco has announced its intent to acquire Embrane, a provider of a lifecycle management platform for application-centric network services.

“With agility and automation as persistent drivers for IT teams, the need to simplify application deployment and build the cloud is crucial for the data centre,” says Hilton Romanski, Senior VP, Head of Business Development, Cisco.

“As we continue to drive virtualisation and automation, the unique skill set and talent of the Embrane team will allow us to move more quickly to meet customer demands.”

With this acquisition, Romanski says the company aims to continue its “commitment to open standards” through programmable APIs and multi-vendor environments.

“More importantly, we remain committed to the rich ecosystem of partners and customers in production through the automation of network services, cloud and system management orchestration and automation stacks,” he adds.

Together with Cisco’s engineering expertise, Romanski says the Embrane team will help to expand the vendor’s strategy of offering “freedom of choice” to customers through the Nexus product portfolio, while enhancing the capabilities of Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).

The Embrane team will be joining the Insieme Business Unit with the acquisition expected to be complete before the end of the current quarter. Financial terms were not disclosed.
