Citrix Buys Way Deeper Into Cloud

It is clear that nearly all vendors want into the cloud. A few have a head start, such as those that have huge remote datacenters like carriers and service providers, vendors such as Google and Microsoft with data center and software and services and, last but not least, virtualization vendors upon which most cloud services are based.

Citrix sees this opportunity and recently raised the stakes a bit by buying VMLogix. VMLogix is not a cloud provider, per se. Its software makes it easier to manage the life cycles of vast numbers of hypervisors and VMs, therefore making it easier to set up an elastic infrastructure to support internal or external cloud apps.

While primarily aimed at providers, large shops building large private clouds may be a target as well.

Do you ever see yourself building a private cloud? Answers welcome across the ether at [email protected]
