The company released information about its Cisco CloudVerse framework, with which Chief Technology Officer Padmasree Warrior (@Padmasree) made herself available on Twitter for cloud trend questioning.
The New New Internet (@newnewinternet) asked Warrior how this release related to government contracting. She indicated that the government is a key vertical using community clouds, which is a big focus of the release.
CloudVerse combines many technologies and offerings that were previously provided as individual components, according to Warrior’s blog post on the announcement.
“What we are doing now is bringing these sets of products together,” she wrote.
The framework combines unified data centers, cloud intelligent networks and cloud applications and services, which the company says makes for better security and economics.
The Wall Street Journal points out in its report that data center traffic redistribution from one data center to another usually only happens with one data center in the mix.
Padmasree defined the “many types of clouds: private clouds, public clouds, hybrid clouds, and even interconnected communities of clouds serving different verticals, like government, healthcare or finance.”
The company indicated that the network framework is an enabler of the cloud community. Cloud is “fundamentally rooted in networking,” according to a comment by Ken Stephens, senior vice president of cloud services for ACS, a Xerox Company.
