Public cloud experience in a private cloud environment

Metacloud is a production-ready, OpenStack-based, on-premises solution that we engineer, deploy, and remotely operate 24x7x365 on your behalf. Like public cloud, it just works.

End-of-sale announcement

Cisco announces the end-of-sale and end-of-life dates for Cisco Metacloud. Customers with active subscriptions will be able to order or renew subscriptions through May 1, 2018.


Advanced operational support and high availability

Our team of cloud experts monitors your environment 24/7, keeping it running all day, every day. Every aspect of the orchestration and controller environment is redundant and built for high availability.

Advanced dashboard and integrated identity

The Cisco Metacloud dashboard is a full self-service web portal that makes it easy to configure and deploy projects, instances, and storage while also providing visibility into the performance and utilization of your cloud.

API and unified CLI compatibility

Cisco fully supports OpenStack APIs as well as Amazon Web Services (AWS) APIs. In addition, Metacloud is fully compatible with the OpenStack Unified CLI.


Metacloud delivers a true public cloud experience, privately. Users have full access to the powerful API, command line, and dashboard capabilities. Administrators see aggregated views of users, projects, and the entire availability zone.


Our VLAN+ Network Manager works in multiple reference architectures to support multi-tenancy, floating IP addresses, security groups, contiguous tenant IP pools, and integrated load balancing. It also helps to ensure optimal network address and VLAN usage in your data center.


Cisco Metacloud offers all the storage configurations needed to support the demands your applications have for private cloud infrastructure. There are choices to optimize for block, file, and object storage based on your existing environment and future needs.
