Congratulations to UTR Alumni AppFog on being acquired by CenturyLink! AppFog first came to UTR in 2011 and returned as a Graduate Circle company in 2012, winning the People’s Choice award. CenturyLink announced today that they have acquired AppFog as a part of  Savvis, a CenturyLink company that offers cloud infrastructure and hosted IT services. The deal was headed by MergerTech, one of our UTR sponsors! Jeff Von Deylen, president of CenturyLink’s Savvis organization, said, “Combining AppFog’s market-leading Platform-as-a-Service capabilities with Savvis’ industry-leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud services and CenturyLink’s global network will enable developers to securely and reliably operate and connect the applications they build and deploy.”
