AWS and Cisco partner on container technology for hybrid cloud
Cisco, which is a US-based network service provider has now collaborated with the Amazon Cloud Computing unit that is Amazon Web Services to offer a product that will allow the developers to build the apps in the cloud and data centers.
Moreover, this was going to be the Cisco first hybrid solutions for the Kubernetes on the Amazon Web Services. Kubernetes is an open source system which is built for the developers to build the apps in containers. The system will also help in the process of automation and rapid development.
The announcement revealed significance for the Cisco as AWS is merely considered to be a leader in the cloud infrastructure space and this particular partnership comes just after the company has already signed some of the similar alliances with the Microsoft and Google.
Cisco sparkle in the market by retaining its customers who currently also have to need to run on the hybrid model, on the other hand, they also operate on their own sort of data centers which is owing to privacy policies and regulations.
“Today, most customers are forced to choose between developing applications on-premises or in the cloud,” said Kip Compton, senior vice president, cloud platform and solutions at Cisco. “This can create a complex mix of environments, technologies, teams, and vendors. But they shouldn’t have to make a choice.”
“Now, developers can use existing investments to build new cloud-scale applications that fuel business innovation. This makes it easier to deploy and manage hybrid applications, no matter where they run. This allows customers to get the best out of both cloud and their on-premises environments with a single solution,” Compton said.
AWS and CISCO also revealed that the new solution would be going to reduce up the cost for the IT operations teams and complexity. And going to be available starting from next month.
