On Wednesday, Google announced its partnership with Cisco to offer a hybrid cloud solution that helps their clients amplify security and agility with an open platform for designing and directing applications both on Google Cloud and on-premises.
"This joint solution from Google and Cisco facilitates an easy and incremental approach to tapping the benefits of the Cloud. This is what we hear customers asking for," said Diane Greene, CEO, Google Cloud.
The complete solution will develop, manage, protect and track workloads, allowing clients to improve their existing investments, design their cloud movement at their own pace and avoid lock-in. It will also help developers to build new apps in the on-premises and cloud using the same production environment, runtime, and tools.
"Our partnership with Google gives our customers the very best cloud has to offer— agility and scale, coupled with enterprise-class security and support," said Chuck Robbins, chief executive officer, Cisco. "We share a common vision of a hybrid cloud world that delivers the speed of innovation in an open and secure environment to bring the right solutions to our customers."
The hybrid cloud solution offers a reliable Kubernetes environment for both Google’s managed kubernetes service, Google Container Engine, and on-premises Cisco Private Cloud Infrastructure. This helps developers to deploy the same code in any place and avoid lock-in, with their choice of operating system, software, hypervisor, and management.
According to SUSE, the solution is especially profitable to organizations, as the trend of hybrid cloud continues to boom. Nearly 66% of enterprises anticipate this hybrid cloud growth to continue, whereas 36% are for public cloud and 55% for private cloud.
