Benefits of Cloud Connectors

Enterprises are quickly adopting cloud services to help enable new business models for greater flexibility at lower cost. In fact, according to the Cisco Global Cloud Index, cloud IP traffic will account for nearly two-thirds of total data center traffic by 2016.

This transition will place new demands on enterprise WANs, which are the critical path between users and the cloud. To optimize employee productivity and realize all the benefits of cloud computing, you need to help ensure the availability, performance, and security of all cloud-based applications.

Enhancing the Application Experience

In alignment with its Open Network Environment (ONE) strategy, Cisco has introduced Cisco Cloud Connectors. They help enable or enhance cloud services by using network services to deliver a better application experience.

A Cisco Cloud Connector is a Cisco or third-party software component embedded in, hosted on, or integrated with enterprise routing platforms. This includes Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 [ISR G2] or Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers.

From Storage to Security

Cloud connectors can be used for a variety of applications, including storage, virtualization, document handling, security, collaboration, and provisioning. Learn more about the validated Cisco and third-party application connectors in the All Products section.
