Cisco Acquires Piston Cloud Computing – A Move that is Expected to Bode Well For Overall Market

In 2016, Cisco announced that it has acquired Piston Cloud Computing, a company operating in the cloud computation network. Cisco’s acquisition of Piston will help bolster its Intercloud platform and improve its operational capabilities on a global scale. Cisco’s network architecture is based on an open-source cloud integration platform. This helps the user to control their personal data across both, public and private networks. With this acquisition, Cisco plans to build the largest network ‘Intercloud’. The Intercloud is a network of globally distributed cloud platforms which is managed through a virtual network, centrally. This network helps meet consumer demands within the Internet of Everything (IOE) requirements. Cisco’s latest acquisition will have a positive impact on the global virtual router market and is likely to favor growth of the market on the forthcoming years.

Incorporation of Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) to Boost the Global Market

The incorporation of redundancy protocol in virtual routers is driving the market over the past few years. The redundancy protocol will help users perform functions such as packet routing, centrally. The controlled operations of the virtual router over software integrated protocols has improved the reliability of the network. A virtual router software operating on the VRRP possesses many advantages that has led to an increase in demand for virtual routers, globally.

The VRRP concept is driven by three major factors, namely the virtual IP address, the virtual MAC address, and the virtual master router. In a standard VRRP, a group of routers are operating simultaneously and, in case of failure of one router, the other one can take its place. This factor has led to an increased reliability and a subsequent rise in demand for virtual routers. The use of VRRP concept has favoured the growth of the global virtual routers market and is likely to boost the market in the coming years.
