Mirra’s stuffed with cash

Apparently I am not the only one who loves Mirra and its back-up drives. The company just got a $8 million cash infusion from venture capitalists including Sequoia Capital. Sequoia Capital Partner Sameer Gandhi has joined Mirra’s board of directors. The investment will be used to accelerate Mirra’s product development schedules, retail market penetration and marketing efforts. What more, the company snagged Jonathan M. Harris from Roku as Mirra’s vice president of sales. What does that mean? Is Roku in some sort of trouble? After all when the VP of sales leaves, well…. Anyway I think Cisco should buy Mirra. Given that it is trying to go consumer with Linksys, this could be a good addition to its portfolio.
