Our Cloud Strategy
The implementation of the Internet of Everything (IoE) is leading to rapid innovation and business opportunity, along with new challenges for IT leaders. Many companies like yours are looking to improve business with new online services that foster growth while reducing costs, minimizing risks, and increasing agility. Multicloud environments are increasingly becoming the answer.
Cisco and our partners are connecting private, public, open, and hybrid clouds with the globally connected network of clouds, the intercloud. The best mix of private, public, and hybrid cloud is different for every company. To help you navigate your journey to cloud, Cisco in collaboration with IDC, compiled insights from more than 3400 organizations across 17 countries, and created tools to help you develop an actionable cloud adoption plan based on your business goals.
Unlike other hybrid approaches, our cloud strategy allows for workload portability across the entire Intercloud. An open, standards-based global infrastructure makes this possible. We can help you overcome the security, regulatory, and compliance issues you're facing with existing public and hybrid cloud solutions.
Our approach gives you the choice of hundreds of enterprise-class cloud services with the compliance and control you need:
