Padmasree Warrior, chief technology and strategy officer at Cisco, said Thursday that the companies are also “expanding their relationship and accelerating collaboration around OpenStack, Application Centric Infrastructure and Intercloud.“
Cisco’s UCS integrated infrastructure services work to streamline OpenStack-based private cloud operations for customers and provide on-ramp deployment to the Intercloud platform.
The infrastructure for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack platform will incorporate Cisco unified computing, application centric infrastructure and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack platform.
Cisco also integrates its UCS servers into Nexus switching, UCS Director management and storage access.
The companies want customers to automate their cloud platforms with the extension of the Cisco ACI policy framework to OpenStack environments.
