Our Cloud Strategy
The Internet of Everything 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. Multi-cloud environments are increasingly the answer.
Cisco and our partners are connecting private, public, and hybrid clouds into an interconnected global "cloud of clouds": the Intercloud.
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 delivers an enterprise-class portfolio of cloud services for businesses, cloud providers, and resellers:
A Complete Cloud Strategy: Spanning Private and Hybrid Clouds
Our Cisco cloud solution portfolio and partner ecosystem offer you the choice to build clouds or consume clouds from your trusted cloud provider.
To help build hybrid-ready private clouds, our products and solutions deliver open and highly secure portability of your workloads across heterogeneous environments. We offer world-class cloud applications and services directly and through partners for public, as-a-Service options as well. Or, we can manage your cloud infrastructure for you, while you retain full visibility and control through our Cisco Managed Cloud Services.
We help public cloud providers deliver differentiated cloud services through Cisco Powered architectures and our leading partner program.
To help you consume cloud, we provide world-class cloud applications and services directly, as well as through partners.
From your decision to buy or build all the way to your application migration, Cisco Cloud Consulting Services can help you plan, build, and implement the right cloud strategy.
