This document provides guidance and best practices for deploying Cisco Hybrid Cloud Solution for IT Capacity Augmentation use cases, allowing customers to seamlessly extend the enterprise network and security, and manage workloads on different Public Clouds, such as AWS, Azure, and Cisco Powered Provider.
The design has undergone an intensive test program, and the goal of this validated solution is to minimize the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) of a customer looking to deploy Intercloud Fabric for Business, by accelerating and simplifying its deployment. The focus is on Intercloud Fabric for Business and the end-to-end solution validation, in the context of Capacity Augmentation use case and three specific sub-use cases:
1. Generic Workload Offloading (with and without network and security services)
2. Distributed Generic Workload (with and without network and security services)
3. Planned Peak Capacity
This guide supplements the general Cisco Intercloud Fabric document.
This document is intended for, but not limited to, IT managers or architects, sales engineers, field consultants, professional services, Cisco channel partner engineering staff, and all customers who wish to understand further how to seamlessly place and manage their virtualized workloads in a hybrid cloud environment.
