Cisco Plus provides all the benefits of Cisco, now as-a-service. Boost speed, agility and scale with on-demand solutions that intelligently adapt to your business needs. Our hybrid cloud offers give you flexible consumption for your on-premises infrastructure, so you can optimize workloads across a hybrid cloud with superior performance and great value. We are taking several years of buying trends and behaviors and packaging our most popular solutions to meet common needs.

You have the flexibility to choose a delivery model tailored to your business.

Pay per use:

This model provides maximum flexibility on service capacity. It allows you to scale up or down as your business changes and is ideal for seasonal or hard-to-predict scenarios. You select a reserved service capacity for your organization and then can scale up or down as your requirements vary.

Pay as you grow:

Ideal for high-growth organizations, this model provides a buffer for growth in the services you need. It allows you to commit to a known service capacity and allows flexibility to add capacity as your business needs change.

In each scenario, Cisco will deploy the infrastructure and software as-a-service. You can choose to self-manage day-2 operations or work with a leading Cisco provider partner for a fully managed service offer.

We are building a model that will grow dynamically as your business needs evolve and change over time.
