What was vCider all about?

After Cisco acquired vCider in early October the content quickly disappeared from vCider web site. If the bombastic industry press claims how vCider acquisition represents Cisco’s response to VMware’s Nicira acquisition, and how it will “boost Cisco’s distributed cloud vision” left you confused, read my blog post from June 2011 to review what vCider was all about. For a more balanced view, read also Omar Sultan’s blog post.

Finally, you might want to watch the description of vCider from my Cloud Computing Networking webinar.


  1. vCider is an acquisition to bring the development experience and skill for network programmability between controller/clients. Nothing more. vCider as a product is dead.

    IMO :)
