Google, Cisco amp-up enterprise cloud integration
The joint Google and Cisco Kubernetes platform for enterprise customers should appear before the end of the year, and things are getting warm between the two companies ahead of that highly anticipated release.
Cisco and Google last October teamed up to develop a Kubernetes hybrid-cloud offering. Kubernetes, originally designed by Google, is an open-source-based system for developing and orchestrating containerized applications.
The Cisco/Google combination – which is currently being tested by an early access enterprise customer, according to Google – will let IT managers and application developers use Cisco tools to manage their on-premises environments and link it up with Google’s public IaaS cloud which offers orchestration, security and ties to a vast developer community.
