Cisco introduces CloudVerse
New framework combines Unified Data Centre, Cloud Intelligent Network, Cloud Applications
Cisco has introduced its Cisco CloudVerse framework, which combines Unified Data Centre, Cloud Intelligent Network, and Cloud Applications to help organisations build, manage and connect public, private and hybrid clouds.
By integrating the three foundational cloud elements CloudVerse is designed to deliver a business-class cloud experience: within the cloud, between clouds, and beyond the cloud to the end user.
According to Cisco, 70% of leading Cloud providers are using Cisco CloudVerse on their journey to the cloud.
"Until recently, cloud implementations existed in smaller scales and in silos. This has made it harder to build and manage clouds, and to interconnect multiple clouds, posing critical challenges for many organisations," said Rabih Dabboussi, director, Service Providers Segment, director, Systems Engineering, Cisco Emerging Theatre. "Cisco uniquely enables the world of many clouds - connecting people, communities and organisations with an assured cloud user experience for the next-generation internet. We are very pleased that many of the world's leading businesses and service providers are adopting Cisco CloudVerse as the foundation of their cloud strategies, and we look forward to partnering closely with each of them on their journey to a world of many clouds."
Cisco is supporting CloudVerse with new cloud enablement services, which combine Cisco's professional services expertise with that of a broad ecosystem of partners, designed to allow organisations to accelerate their cloud success and realise the full potential of cloud computing.
Cisco CloudVerse is designed to help organisations offer business IT-as-a-service and dynamic SMB/consumer services.
According to Cisco, moving from a traditional virtualised data centre to a CloudVerse cloud can reduce IT total cost of ownership by up to 50% and reduce the time to offer new cloud services from weeks to minutes.
