Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) may be an uncrowned champion of Silicon Valley
Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) is reported to have been involved in sponsoring a secret project designed to enhance data storage capability even further in coming years. This project is collectively funded by CSCO, Ignition Partners, RRE Ventures and Spring Mountain Capital. However, the loan came from Silicon Valley Bank SVB Financial Group (NASDAQ:SIVB).
Presumably, data storage enhancement project is by far from being a reality and therefore is proving to be centre of speculation in the market. But, the huge chunk of money going from CSCO towards WhipTail in order to finance the featured project is taken as a symbol of company’s financial strength.
Additionally, WhipTail has previously managed to procure $31m from the firms operating in Silicon Valley. Additionally, SanDisk has invested $75m in the concerned project. But, the results of these huge investments are yet to be seen in the longer run.
