Evidently IBM bought Cast Iron Systems for $190 million

Sequoia told TechCrunch that Cast Iron Systems was acquired for $190 million. That’s a much more successful exit than I thought.

    Wow, I didn’t know the number but that’s certainly better than I thought. I had coffee with the original two founders one day talking about this idea they had. They originally called it IronHide, which I thought was a pretty fun name. The founders were very bright guys, and the early days they had a great team, lot’s of ‘start-up’ fun and energy. But it was a tough slog, selling integration wasn’t easy. It’s a great payoff for the that original team!
