Quest’s Mystery Bidder Plops Down $2.32 Billion
The money in play for Quest Software jumped from $2.17 billion to $2.32 billion Monday morning. The mystery bidder, believed to be Dell, that looked trumped a few days ago is back in the game after topping the $25.75-a-share offer made by Insight Venture Partners and Vector Capital, two private equity outfits, with a bid of $27.50 a share cash, a sharp increase. The sum approaches the $28 a share or $2.36 billion JPMorgan claimed the company was worth weeks ago. Insight on its own started with $23 a share in March and had to call in reinforcements last week to go to $25.75. The unnamed strategic bidder is going to have to pay a $25 million termination fee to make the Insight-Vector alliance go away. Insight-Vector could also re-up but they’re already working on borrowed capital. There’s no financing in the mystery bid. The Insight-Vector combine has three business days to decide whet...
It's Official: Microsoft to Acquire Yammer
Microsoft has, as leaked a couple of weeks ago, gone ahead and cut a deal to buy the Twitter-y enterprise social network Yammer for $1.2 billion cash to extend its cloud services and protect its revenue flank. The four-year-old start-up and its 400 people will be sent to the Office Division when the acquisition closes in Q3. Yammer CEO David Sachs, the former COO of PayPal, will report to Office president Kurt DelBene. Yammer’s five million-odd verified corporate users reportedly include 85% of the Fortune 500. Yammer offers a free secure private network hoping to trigger a viral “grassroots movement” that it can convert into a company-wide initiative competing with Microsoft for $5 a head every month. Customers pay to upgrade their network with administrative and security controls, integrations with enterprise applications, priority customer service and a so-called designate...

Cloud Computing: Salesforce Buys ChoicePass to Shut It Down
Salesforce has bought SMB-focused corporate perks and employee rewards management start-up ChoicePass a year after the outfit drummed up $250,000 in seed money. Its site will be shut down on June 30 and the team that put the operation together sucked up into Salesforce according to an official blog posting. It said that “Since launching our Perks product, we’ve found that there is massive demand from businesses for innovative ways to manage employee engagement, rewards and incentives. It has been an amazing experience for us to work with such great companies, partners and of course, people.” It got as far as fielding an Android app last month and was supposed to turn out an iPhone and iPad app next.
Cloud Computing: Fujitsu to OEM Eucalyptus Cloud Platform
Fujitsu has cut an OEM deal with Eucalyptus Systems to deliver a private IaaS cloud solution. Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc is going to use Eucalyptus’ open source private cloud platform to power its pre-packaged NuVola Private Cloud Platform, otherwise consisting of Fujitsu’s x86 Primergy servers, Eternus storage appliances and virtualization software. Since Eucalyptus is compatible and integrated with Amazon’s public cloud, Fujitsu’s will be too, adding to Amazon’s luster as the de facto cloud standard. Frontech customers are in manufacturing, retail, healthcare, government, education, financial services, the enterprise and communications. The NuVola Private Cloud Platform is available immediately.
Microsoft Embarks on a New Path
Microsoft is showing a way to enterprise mobility, albeit via a perilous path for its historic partners and channels. Where goes Apple, there follows Microsoft. Where goes Microsoft, there follows the enterprise. And so, the inevitability of mobile work and resulting higher productivity across almost all that IT enables is now assured, thanks to Microsoft's unveiling yesterday of its Surface family of mobility PCs. It's not that workers have not wanted mobility, as only defined in the past few years by smartphones and tablets, best represented by iOS and Android. It's just that IT departments and planners didn't really know how to give it to them. Now, with Surface and the Windows PC-tablet hybrid it defines, Microsoft is showing a way to enterprise mobility, albeit via a perilous path for its historic partners and channels. But Microsoft has bolted from its own ecosystem before an...
Roger Sippl’s Back
Roger Sippl, who co-founded Informix a generation ago, then Vantive and Visigenic, all acquired after going public, is staging a comeback with new database widgetry that does real-time data integration from multiple sources in the cloud. He’s been working on it for four years recruiting along the way 20 guys from the old days who are already rich thanks to Roger but still want to be “useful.” Elastic Intelligence, the company he started a few years ago, is going to productize this newfangled virtual relational database technology as Connection Cloud, a real-time data connection service infrastructure and all.
Vordel Dreams Up the – Drum Roll, Please – API Server
Dublin-based Vordel has spun up a newfangled API Server offering the enterprise a single platform to deploy APIs to cloud services and mobile users. The widgetry builds on its application gateway technologies. The company sees it as a simpler, more agile way to deploy apps and a quicker way to drive revenue. The APIs Vordel has in mind are the lightweight REST and JSON APIs used to enable mobile, web and cloud applications; SOAP APIs for SOA; and file-based interfaces for B2B integration. Architecturally the API Server could replace or stand in front of an application server. It can be deployed in traditional data centers or in an elastic cloud environment, including public, private and hybrid clouds.

What Is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is becoming one of the next industry buzz words. It joins the ranks of terms including: grid computing, utility computing, virtualization, clustering, etc. Cloud computing overlaps some of the concepts of distributed, grid and utility computing, however it does have its own meaning if contextually used correctly. The conceptual overlap is partly due to technology changes, usages and implementations over the years. Trends in usage of the terms from Google searches shows Cloud Computing is a relatively new term introduced in the past year. There has also been a decline in general interest of Grid, Utility and Distributed computing. Likely they will be around in usage for quit a while to come. But Cloud computing has become the new buzz word driven largely by marketing and service offerings from big corporate players like Google, IBM and Amazon.
