Cisco Partners with PeerApp

Dan Rayburn (pictured) covers recent M&A in the infrastructure space including the recent acquisition of Oversi by Allot Communications (see "Allot Buys Oversi for $16M in Cash; Replaces PeerApp OEM" - here).

As I mentioned in post about the acquisition Allot already has a transparent caching function embedded in its DPI product (MediaSwift), based on its OEM agreement with PeerApp.

While PeerApp may have lost the Allot relations, according to Dan things may not be so bad as "It’s also interesting to note that Cisco was a shareholder in Oversi, yet Cisco didn’t bid on buying the company and recently partnered with transparent caching provider PeerApp instead".
