Cisco, a leading company that develops, manufactures, and sells networking hardware, telecommunications equipment, and other high-technology services and products, recently announced its intention to obtain privately held Cloud intelligence platform, ThousandEyes Inc. ThousandEyes’ platform is all set to offer Cisco customers an end-to-end view into the digital delivery of applications and services.
During these unprecedented times when the dependence of businesses on internet has increased ten-fold, the ability of enterprise IT teams to anticipate, visualize and control operational behavior has taken a massive hit. By common tooling and sharing datasets for application and network health, the silos would be removed which in turn would offer IT teams a real-time visibility into the application performance deterioration issues.
Talking about the new development, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Cisco Enterprise Networking and Cloud, Todd Nightingale said that they are ecstatic to welcome ThousandEyes team onboard. He elaborated that this partnership would bring forth a deeper understanding and broader visibility in order to enhance network and application performance across cloud and enterprise networks. Moreover, this will perk up the networking reliability and overall application experience of the users by giving them end-to-end visibility while accessing cloud applications.
ThousandEyes would join Cisco’s newly-formed Network Service Business Unit, reporting to Todd Nightingale. The CEO and Co-founder Mohit Lad would assume the role of GM of ThousandEyes. Apart from that, the Co-founder and CTO Ricardo Oliveira would continue to lead ThousandEyes’ product vision and innovation schemes. This acquisition is estimated to close before the end of Cisco’s Q1 FY’21.
