SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cisco today extended its industry-leading cloud portfolio with new products and services – including a breakthrough hybrid cloud solution, dubbed Cisco InterCloud – which lowers total cost of ownership for organizations and paves the way for interoperable and highly secure public, private and hybrid clouds. The expansion of the portfolio also broadens Cisco's commitment to openness and shows the unique value in the company's partner-led model.

The new products and services in Cisco's extended cloud portfolio include:

  • Cisco InterCloud
  • Cisco/Red Hat Initiatives
  • Cisco Services for Cloud Strategy, Management, and Operations
  • Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud (IAC) 4.0

    “Cisco introduced the concept of the ‘World of Many Clouds’ two years ago, and since then we and our partners have been enabling an ever-expanding world of secure clouds, helping organizations shape their own unique cloud journeys,” said Robert Lloyd, Cisco president of development and sales “Now, as brokers of IT services, organizations can add value by dynamically combining, integrating, and tailoring the delivery of cloud services – whether public, private, or hybrid – to best meet their business needs. Today marks a key step in evolution of cloud computing – cloud workload portability will deliver immense benefits to cloud providers and cloud customers, paving the way toward an open and secure cloud ecosystem that delivers greater levels of agility, transparency, and speed of deployment, to fuel innovation and help businesses achieve their objectives as well as drive the Internet of Everything.”

    Cisco InterCloud
    Cisco InterCloud is infrastructure software which supports hybrid clouds by allowing organizations to combine and move workloads – including data and applications – across different public or private clouds as needed, easily and very securely while maintaining associated network and security policies.

    Cisco/Red Hat Initiatives
    Cisco and Red Hat are working together on several key initiatives to extend OpenStack and enable open, interoperable cloud environments. These include Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings designed to allow customers to manage both legacy environments and web-scale cloud environments. For example, the companies have integrated Cisco Prime network management and the Cisco IAC service catalog with the Red Hat OpenShift platform to provide dynamic scaling, tenant-level security, and integrated management and provisioning.

    New Cisco Services
    Cisco Services for Cloud Strategy, Management, and Operations provide organizations with business flexibility and agility designed around an open and secure infrastructure. This is based on three critical success factors for evolving an organization’s cloud strategy: a choice in consumption models, reduced exposure to risks throughout the journey, and the ability to intelligently secure and automate a cloud environment.

    Cisco IAC
    Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud 4.0 delivers a comprehensive cloud management solution for enterprises and cloud service providers to deploy private, public, or hybrid clouds. This new software release provides enhanced service catalog features for ordering and provisioning any type of IT service from a user-friendly, self-service portal. New integration between Cisco IAC and Cisco UCS Director provides the ability to rapidly provision both virtual and physical infrastructure for cloud deployments on Cisco UCS and Nexus, as well as third-party hardware.
