Cloud Gets Social: VMware Acquires Socialcast
Virtualization company VMware has acquired Socialcast, an enterprise collaboration start-up, for an undisclosed sum. Socialcast customers and users include VMware itself, as well as Avaya, Humana, Nokia, Philips Electronics and (disclosure alert!) even little AllThingsD. It’s kind of like a Facebook news feed for the enterprise, which can be hosted by Socialcast or by customers on their own premises.
