Citrix Is Preparing Cloud, A Relaunch Of The Cloud.com Service It Bought In 2011 For $200M+

Cloud services are where the action is for enterprise IT companies right now, and Citrix, which bought the open source, cloud-computing platform Cloud.com for upwards of $200 million in 2011 (getting a killer domain name in the process), wants to be at the vanguard of that trend. It’s now preparing to launch a new service at the domain, which will simply be called “Cloud” (minus the dot-com). It has put up a placeholder at Cloud.com with a sign-up for “early access and pleasantly infrequent updates” for what it is describing as a “new Cloud on the horizon.”

It’s not clear at this point whether this will be a completely new product (one guess from TNW is a new home for Project Avalon), to compete against the likes of VMWare, Amazon, Oracle and Salesforce. On the other hand, it could simply be a relaunch of the services that existed at Cloud.com before the old page was taken down. The change was first brought to our attention by Fusible, which had a screenshot of how the page looked last week.
