Open orchestration and infrastructure as a service

The Cisco ONE™ Enterprise Cloud Suite - Infrastructure Automation offer delivers allinclusive provisioning, orchestration, and management for Cisco® and third-party hardware solutions for both the physical and virtual devices. It allows you to efficiently and costeffectively deploy private cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

You can extend your capabilities to:

     Automate provisioning, orchestration, and management of Cisco and third-party resources.

     Consume infrastructure services from an intuitive self-service portal.

     Automate security and isolation models to provide repeatable services.

     Standardize and automate multi-tenant environments across shared infrastructure instances.

Greater flexibility

Cisco has partnered with many hardware vendors and independent software vendors to establish an open framework for IaaS. Our broad ecosystem includes multiple hypervisor, networking, and storage vendors to provide you with greater flexibility while offering the benefits of deep integrations. We support bare-metal, containerized, and virtual-machine applications. Rather than having to choose one software-defined infrastructure, you have the choice of supporting multiple environments.

Benefits

     Infrastructure delivery in minutes through unified provisioning and management of computing, network, and storage resources

     Accelerated time to market for applications through selfservice portals and error-free delivery of production and development environments

Easing your transition to cloud and DevOps

Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite Infrastructure Automation features a unified API that is supported by the broader Cisco UCS ecosystem of DevOps and IT Operations Management (ITOM) tools. This means you can transition to cloud using existing tools, as you adopt new automation and continuous delivery processes. Start with infrastructure automation and grow to consistent delivery of complete data center stacks.

Cisco’s modular approach to multicloud lets you begin with your data center and grow to include hybrid public and private cloud management as well as the ability to optimize the placement of workloads. Your organization can achieve rapid return on investment. IT operations, development, and non-IT teams can adjust to new processes faster, and you can adopt automation more organically. Subscription-based licensing simplifies license and support management for easier compliance, lowers up-front costs, and shifts spending to an operating budget.

Cost-effective infrastructure automation and multicloud

Extend from automating infrastructure to delivering infrastructure as a service using the Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite - Infrastructure Automation offer. You can then further extend automation by adding additional offers: Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite Cloud Management, Service Management, and Workload Optimization. Cisco offers budget flexibility with subscriptions in 1, 3, and 5-year term options
