SAN JOSE, CA – March 23, 2022 – Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced new innovations to help customers accelerate and simplify their hybrid cloud journeys.
As application growth continues to drive more interactions between people and things, businesses are striving for simplicity and flexibility to manage application diversity. Modern applications have become more dynamic requiring infrastructure to be more adaptable. At the same time, IT is being asked to support enterprises’ rapidly changing business requirements and speed up infrastructure and application delivery.
As a result, organizations are shifting to a hybrid multicloud operating model to centrally manage infrastructure and applications wherever they reside and deliver optimized application experiences. In fact, a recent Gartner end-user survey showed 76 percent of respondents who are currently using public, hybrid or multicloud infrastructure reported using multiple cloud IaaS and PaaS providers.(1)
Cisco is advancing its strategy to deliver innovation at all levels of the hybrid cloud stack, ranging from silicon to computing systems to a SaaS-delivered operations platform with public cloud integrations – all designed to help customers simplify and manage multiple cloud environments and applications.
“While enterprises are standardizing on hybrid, multicloud environments, many are still building a strategy to minimize complexity and maximize value with an operational model and tools that deliver flexibility, speed and simplicity,” said DD Dasgupta, Vice President, Product Management, Cloud and Compute Business Unit at Cisco. “Cisco has paved the way to help IT operations transform with hybrid cloud, enabling an operational model that allows businesses to adapt quickly, and streamline the secure delivery of applications whether they are located in on-prem datacenters or in the public cloud.”
New hybrid cloud innovations announced today include:
Cisco Intersight Platform
Cisco HyperFlex Hyperconverged Infrastructure
Cisco UCS X-Series
“With increasing cloud adoption, application outcomes are the new currency, and IT must modernize their environments to dynamically deploy resources to suit multiple application demands,” said Matthew Kimball, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy. “Cisco is building on its strategy and technology foundation to help customers simplify their hybrid multicloud environments and provide the infrastructure that powers all types of workloads and delivers the most value from using on-premises resources in coordination with public cloud services.”
