Cisco to Acquire Piston Cloud for OpenStack

Cisco agreed to acquire Piston Cloud Computing, a start-up based in San Francisco, for its enterprise OpenStack solutions. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Piston Enterprise OpenStack is designed for building, scaling and managing a private Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud on bare-metal, converged commodity hardware.  Piston Cloud enables Cloud Foundry's Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering to run on OpenStack. It also supports leading automation solutions, including Opscode, Puppet Labs and RightScale.

Cisco said the acquisition will help advance its Intercloud, which is a globally connected network of clouds being built with its partners.

"The acquisition of Piston will complement our Intercloud strategy by bringing additional operational experience on the underlying infrastructure that powers Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud. Additionally, Piston’s deep knowledge of distributed systems and automated deployment will help further enhance our delivery capabilities for customers and partners," stated Cisco's Hilton Romanski in a blog posting.
