Cisco, Google to deliver hybrid cloud solution

DUBAI, October 26, 2017

Cisco, a global technology leader, and Google Cloud have joined forces to deliver a hybrid cloud solution that will help customers maximise their investments across cloud and on-premises environments.

Google Cloud Platform, offered by Google, is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that the company uses internally for its end-user products.

The solution will be available to a limited number of customers in the first part of 2018, with planned general availability later in the year.

As per the agreement, the companies will provide a unique and open hybrid cloud offering that enables applications and services to be deployed, managed and secured across on-premises environments and Google Cloud Platform, said a statement from Cisco.

The solution delivers cloud speed and scale, with enterprise-class security, it stated.

Companies can now develop new applications in the cloud or on premises, consistently using the same developer tools, run time, and production environment, it added.

Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins said: "Our partnership with Google gives our customers the very best cloud has to offer - agility and scale, coupled with enterprise-class security and support."

“We share a common vision of a hybrid cloud world that delivers the speed of innovation in an open and secure environment to bring the right solutions to our customers,” he noted.

Google Cloud CEO Diane Greene said: "This joint solution from Cisco and us facilitates an easy and incremental approach to tapping the benefits of the cloud. This is what we hear customers asking for."

It helps developers leverage managed Kubernetes, GCP Service Catalog, Cisco networking and security, and Istio authentication and service mesh monitoring. Enterprise app developers can securely access cloud APIs, and cloud developers can securely access enterprise APIs and on-premises resources, she added.-TradeArabia News Service
