Microsoft acquires Cycle Computing

17 Aug 2017 Connecticut - Microsoft and Cycle Computing have announced that Microsoft has acquired Cycle Computing. Cycle Computing will join the Azure team at Microsoft. Whether the Cycle tools will still be available on other Clouds like AWS or Google is not clear. Financial details have not been announced.

Jason Stowe writes on the Cycle blog: "Now, we see amazing opportunities in joining forces with Microsoft. Its global cloud footprint and unique hybrid offering is built with enterprises in mind, and its Big Compute/HPC team has already delivered pivotal technologies such as InfiniBand and next generation GPUs. The Cycle team can't wait to combine CycleCloud's technology for managing Linux and Windows compute and data workloads, with Microsoft Azure's Big Compute infrastructure roadmap and global market reach."
