Google & Cisco complete their cloud portfolios with joint hybrid solution

Another 29.2 percent expect do that within the next year. For example, Microsoft a year ago announced its Azure Stack private cloud solution.

Cisco and Google announced a partnership Wednesday that will allow companies to develop applications and run business processes that will allow companies to develop applications that can run on a firm's own premises or through Google Cloud. "This approach helps enterprises get up and running in the cloud at their own pace, while preserving the value in their existing on-premise investments".

The partnership provides a way for enterprises to run, secure and monitor workloads in Google's cloud, as well as use Google's tools on-premise.

The joint solution could be seen as the final piece in the puzzle for both Cisco and Google when it comes to their cloud stories.

"Our partnership with Google gives our customers the very best cloud has to offer - agility and scale, coupled with enterprise-class security and support", said Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins. All of this could help it gain traction against its larger cloud rivals. The idea is to have Cisco create a custom version of its Hyperflex hybrid cloud framework with Google to connect to Kubernetes seamlessly.

The partnership allows Cisco to get a toehold in the cloud-computing market, where Google has been a strong player.

"While hybrid is here to stay, that's not to say that it's easy", Kip Compton, Cisco's vice president of cloud platform and solutions, wrote in a blog post. The solution also offers a hyperconverged platform that supports existing apps and cloud-native Kubernetes environments, along with a uniform way to connect, secure, manage, and monitor microservices with Istio. "We wanted to do it in a modern way that would enable continuous rapid innovation".

Adding to this, Jaitley said that government has decided on the steps needed to sustain the growth momentum. Government's response to slump in GDP growth.

Specifically, the joint solution helps developers leverage managed Kubernetes, GCP Service Catalog, Cisco networking and security, and Istio authentication and service mesh monitoring.

Customers will be able to use the Cisco Private Cloud Infrastructure to deploy and manage container clusters powered by Kubernetes. "Enterprise app developers can securely access cloud APIs, and cloud developers can securely access enterprise APIs and on-premises resources". Developers will be able to create new applications in the cloud or on-premises consistently using the same tools, runtime and production environment.

In addition, the hybrid cloud solution will make use of the Google-developed Kubernetes for containerized application management, as well as the API management system that Google acquired with its $625 million purchase of the firm Apigee previous year.

The combined effort will be rolled out to select customers in the first part of 2018.

The new service is created to help organizations develop, deploy, and manage applications seamlessly and consistently, whether they're based on premises or in the cloud.

Cisco software components will be licensed on an annual subscription basis including one-, three- and five-year terms. Cicso Capital also will include flexibility financing options.
