What if you could combine the benefits of the public cloud and your IT environment?
Meet the next generation of hybrid cloud.
You want to take advantage of all the new innovations in application development and delivery, from public cloud to containers and microservices, to make the most of your applications.
But until now that’s meant having to choose between development on-premises or in the public cloud ‒ having to compromise with monolithic “stacks” or being challenged to “glue” different parts together. It also meant more complexity, with more silod environments, technologies, teams, and vendors that won’t always work well together. The result has been cost, risk, and lack of freedom.
The Cisco Hybrid Cloud Platform for Google Cloud leverages Cisco’s VPN service to create a unified and secure network that includes your data center and the public cloud. Stealthwatch Cloud takes care of proactive security and thread detection by integrating with Google’s VPC Flow Logs and your on-premises environment so you can manage access of users, devices, and workloads with policy enforcement. This way you can ensure your developers only focus on building applications while you don’t have to worry about security or compliance.
Cisco CloudCenter with Open Service Broker and Istio enables secure provisioning of micro-services across both on-premises and Google Cloud, including integration with a local Kubernetes Service Catalog. This means you can easily access any Google Cloud service, including containers in Google’s Kubernetes Engine mapped to your infrastructure, with the container platform taking care of cluster management on your side. In addition, with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and Contiv, you can easily enforce networking policies that move across clouds with your containerized applications, so networking becomes easier to manage and monitor.
One of the key innovations of Cisco Hybrid Cloud Platform for Google Cloud is being able to expose your on-premises traditional applications and data to the public cloud. With Google Apigee, you can create, manage and secure RESTful APIs to connect existing systems to new public cloud services without having to re-platform them. The result? Making better use of your existing investments and allowing you to move to the cloud at your own pace.
