And tat means lots of separate systems. Cisco expects the Intercloud to do for the cloud what the Internet did for networks.

Cisco has an investment arm that offers funding to startups and other companies. They don't take a controlling interest, rarely investing more than 10% of the start-up's value, typically between $US3 million and $US5 million. They have an active portfolio of around $US2 billion.
