CenturyLink Acquires AppFog for Cloud Portfolio; Jeff Von Deylen Comments

CenturyLinkLogoCenturyLink Inc. has acquired platform-as-a-service provider AppFog Inc. for an undisclosed amount as part of corporate efforts by the Monroe, LA.-based company to improve cloud offerings.

AppFog also provides programming languages as well as public and private cloud interoperability.

More than 100,000 developers use AppFog's PaaS offerings, CenturyLink said.
