Attention Span 09.05.18

What caught my eye today. I expect quite a flurry around Interop and other meetings going on in the US and Europe regarding cloud computing.

10 Cloud Computing Companies to Watch

It's not that there haven't been lots of "companies to watch", but CIO Magazine's list strikes me as ... odd.

AT&T Synaptic Storage as a Service

This is no mean feat. AT&T's offer sounds pretty solid, and if they're telling the story straight, this is a real 'have-it-your-way' offer for everyone from the enterprise to the SMB.

Synaptic Storage as a Service is a virtualized on-demand storehouse that easily scales up and down to any size your enterprise needs and allows you to pay only for the storage you use.

Nimsoft acquires selected assets from Cittio

The Cittio website says that they're in the process of winding-up and dissolving the company. So, in a relatively short span of time ... Tidal gets bought by Cisco, Hyperic is absorbed by SpringSource, and now Cittio. Given the timing of the downturn and the likely course for a number of VCs, I suppose we should expect to see more acquisitions, asset sales and wind-ups in coming 2 - 3 months.

Nimsoft Inc., the Big 4 alternative for IT performance and availability monitoring solutions, today announced that it had acquired the Intellectual Property assets of Cittio Inc., a former provider of automated network and systems monitoring software. Financial details were not disclosed. The purchase, which includes extended capabilities in the areas of layer2/layer3 network discovery, topology mapping and root cause analysis, will enable Nimsoft to rapidly deliver these advanced capabilities within its core products, further strengthening its ability to monitor the performance and availability of an organization's entire physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure.
