Cloud Customer Stories
Customers talk about their success using Cisco cloud computing technologies.
What Cloud Computing Means
A cloud is a powerful combination of cloud computing, networking, storage, management solutions, and business applications that facilitate a new generation of IT and consumer services. These services are available on demand and are delivered economically without compromising security or functionality.
Instead of moving to a single cloud, we are moving to an interconnected "world of many clouds". This will give people access to cloud services any time, on any device, anywhere in the world.
To take full advantage of cloud computing, enterprises need to evolve their IT strategy to achieve greater business value through the improved cost-savings and productivity that cloud services offer. Service providers need to offer and monitor cloud computing services to serve their customers even more effectively while improving profitability.
Why It Matters
Solving today's biggest business and technology challenges requires an approach that fully integrates the three pillars of cloud computing: applications and services, data centers, and networks. This approach will need to keep pace with changing market trends, which require greater elasticity, agility, and speed to support evolution in weeks or months, not years.In Depth
