Container management for a multicloud world

Everybody loves using containers.

Nobody loves deploying, monitoring, and managing them -- especially across multiple public and private clouds. There are simply too many tools and too little standardization.

Cisco Container Platform (CCP) automates the repetitive things and simplifies the complex ones so everyone can just go back to enjoying the magic of containers.

The evolution of the data center

As cloud solutions and services continue their rapid ascent in the enterprise world, becoming mainstays of business agility and efficiency, it’s fair to question the impact on traditional data centers and those who manage them. Are on-premises systems and specialists losing a measure of relevance? Not remotely. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. With Cisco Data Center, gain architectural flexibility and consistent networking across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. A data center that is constantly learning with analytics, constantly adapting with automation, and constantly protecting with policy-driven security.

Enabling digital transformation in data centers and hybrid cloud

Cloud computing has become an integral element of any successful digital transformation strategy. Accordingly, IT budgets are shifting toward cloud. IDC forecasts that public IT cloud services revenue will exceed $141 billion in 2019, recording a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.4% - almost six times the rate of overall IT market growth. In 2019, public IT cloud services will drive 20% of the $716 billion aggregate revenue generated by the need for applications, development and deployment tools, infrastructure software, storage, and servers. By 2018, more than half of enterprises' IT infrastructure and software investments will be cloud based (private and public), reaching 60% to 70% of IT spend by 2020.
