Google and Cisco announce hybrid cloud partnership

How Google Could Woo More Customers Away From Amazon and Microsoft With Help From Cisco

In addition, enterprise app developers can securely access cloud APIs, and cloud developers can securely access enterprise APIs and on-premises resources.

Cisco Systems ( CSCO ) could be the kind of cloud computing partner Google needs to crack the enterprise market.

Cisco and Google Cloud today announced a partnership to deliver a hybrid cloud solution that helps customers maximize their investments across cloud and on-premises environments.

The partnership provides a way for enterprises to run, secure and monitor workloads in Google's cloud, as well as use Google's tools on-premise.

Cisco, which in May announced job cuts, announced this week it cut a deal to buy U.S. cloud communications firm BroadSoft for an overall purchase price of approximately $1.9 billion. The access to enterprise customers is important to Google Cloud officials, who this year have worked to grow beyond its reputation as a consumer-oriented company and position Google Cloud as an enterprise platform.

Amazon Web Services now dominates the market for cloud-based infrastructure services, while Microsoft's Azure occupies the number-two position, according to recent figures from the Synergy Research Group. On-premises, Cisco's hyper-converged platform, Cisco HyperFlex, will provide a cloud-ready solution for Kubernetes and containers, and management tools to enforce security and consumption policies. Indeed, both Gori and Google Cloud's head of global technology partners Nan Boden told me that it's important for both companies to ensure that their solution supports legacy applications.

The combined effort will be rolled out to select customers in the first part of 2018.

Under its partnership with Google, Cisco will provide a variety of hybrid cloud tools for developers via its DevNet developer network, including educational tools and a sandbox environment for application development and testing.

"This partnership to enhance existing on-premises infrastructure and extend it to the cloud addresses tough operational problems that enterprises have traditionally struggled to solve", Boden wrote today on the Google blog. Dell's unit, Pivotal, makes it easier for companies to get started developing software, acting like an operating system for the cloud. Cisco also plans to offer financing solutions for the hardware components of the hybrid cloud solution. Using a GCP service catalog, they'll be able to easily configure their applications to use remote services, without needing detailed knowledge about how those services are created or managed. The whole affair runs with Google's world-renowned cloud backend delivered through the Google Cloud Platform, and Istio is on board for traffic control, enforcement of user-set policies across machines and projects, network and connection management, and routing to ensure that work continues smoothly without any network-related hiccups. Working with Kubernetes, Istio aims to provide a uniform means of connecting and managing micro-services. Software components from Cisco will be licensed on an annual subscription basis that include one-, three- and five-year terms and the infrastructure sold on a perpetual basis.
