Cisco is acquiring privately-held cloud company Metacloud. Based in Pasadena, Calif., Metacloud deploys and operates private clouds with an OpenStack-as-a-Service model that delivers and remotely operates production-ready private clouds in a customer’s data center.

Upon completion of the acquisition, Metacloud employees will join Cisco’s Cloud Infrastructure and Managed Services organization led by Faiyaz Shahpurwala, senior vice president. The acquisition of Metacloud is expected to be complete in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015, subject to customary closing conditions.
