Google and Cisco Create New Cloud Powerhouse

Diane Greene Google

She said the collaboration between Cisco and Google will help enterprises extend existing on-premise systems with services running on Google Cloud, which are able to communicate using modern APIs (application programming interfaces).

The trend of companies and consumers opting to access computing power as services hosted online, instead of owning and maintaining their own software, has led to booming growth for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft's Azure offerings.

Rob Enderle, principal analyst with advisory services firm Enderle Group, said the partnership with Cisco will give Google more "street cred" and "maturity" with business customers.

"Cisco and Google are focused on 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".

"This partnership to enhance existing on-premises infrastructure and extend it to the cloud addresses tough operational problems that enterprises have traditionally struggled to solve", Nan Boden, head of global technology partners for Google Cloud, wrote in a post on the company blog.

Healthy individuals may still suffer short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. The seafood meal bags are just a few of the almost 100 products being recalled by Mann Packing .

Announced on Wednesday (Oct. 25), the deal "facilitates and an easy and incremental approach to tapping into the benefits of the cloud", Diane Greene, CEO of Google Cloud, noted in a statement.

Cisco, which in May announced job cuts, announced this week it cut a deal to buy USA cloud communications firm BroadSoft for an overall purchase price of approximately $1.9 billion. IDC analysts found in a survey earlier this year that nearly 80 percent of large organizations - those with 1,000 or more employees - say they already have a hybrid cloud strategy in place, while 51.4 percent are using both public and private cloud infrastructures. Both companies are using open-source technologies to give customers more flexibility.

This is because companies can now develop new applications in the cloud or on premises, using the same developer tools, run time, and production environment. "We wanted to ultimately offer a consistent environment on-premises and in the cloud so developers could develop wherever they want, and deploy wherever they want". Cisco's customers are increasingly using cloud services instead of investing in hardware for their own data centers. Thus, Istio makes it easier for developers to implement new, more portable services, and creates a separate policy-based platform to configure and manage those services centrally. It also takes advantage of Cisco's best-of-breed capabilities, including the ability to extend Cisco's network and security policies and configurations and monitor application behavior across hybrid cloud environments. "Google's Apigee API management platform allows developers to quickly and more securely access legacy systems without all the complexity". "Kubernetes is about seeding the industry with open source standards for application development and operations that aim to disintermediate workloads from a specific IaaS provider".

Cisco software components will be licensed on an annual subscription basis including one-, three- and five-year terms. Google cloud services will be offered on a consumption basis.
