Cisco Intercloud Fabric for Business

Safely and Easily Deploy Hybrid Enterprise Clouds

Cisco Intercloud Fabric is a highly secure, open, and flexible solution that gives you complete freedom in workload placement, based on business needs. It applies the same network security, quality of service (QoS), and access control policies in public clouds that you enforce in the data center. And as capacity is added, there is no demarcation between internal and external clouds.

Key features include:

  • Self-service consumption of hybrid resources with end-user and IT portals
  • Workload provisioning and bidirectional migration
  • End-to-end security with consistent policy enforcement
  • A single point of management and control for physical and virtual workloads
  • A choice of cloud providers and hypervisors
