Cisco is acquiring software firm Cloupia for $125 million in cash and retention-based incentives as part of its strategy to develop new data center, virtualization and cloud technologies.

Cisco said Thursday it expects to close the deal during the second quarter of its 2013 fiscal year pending standard closing conditions and integrate Cloupia’s employees into Cisco’s data center group.

Cisco’s data center strategy involves providing clients physical and virtual products for supporting hypervisors and storage stacks, said David Yen, Cisco senior vice president and general manager for the data center business group.

Cloupia, based in Santa Clara, Calif., automates converged data center infrastructure for enterprises and service providers to deploy and configure physical and virtual resources from one management console.

According to Cisco, Cloupia’s infrastructure management software complements the Cisco Unified Computing System and Nexus switching portfolio with a single view into the automation of compute, network, storage, virtual machine and operating system resources.
