Span Public and Private Clouds to Let Services Run Where They Run Best
We are excited to announce a collaboration between Google Cloud and Cisco to create an open cloud hybrid architecture to meet you where you are on your cloud journey.
Whether using on premises, cloud native or any configuration of hybrid cloud computing, Google Cloud and Cisco will provide a well supported path for you to migrate to cloud at your own pace and on your own terms, with help from open source technologies.
A key piece of this architecture is Istio (Istio.io) , a new container and microservice-optimized open source networking technology. Istio allows you to use policy-driven controls to scalably connect, secure, discover and govern connections between services, both on-prem and in the cloud.
Now you can optimize your cloud to achieve unprecedented business agility and investment protection.
Benefits of using Google Cloud with Cisco
Google Cloud can securely consume services from existing systems running on premises using modern rest-based APIs. Google Cloud enables app developers to build services that scale and can extend their customer reach while consuming data locked in existing systems that cannot move to the cloud yet.
