Cisco's Cloud Computing Strategy
A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Inter-Cloud

Cloud Musings

A couple of weeks ago, Krishna Sankar provided a glimpse into Cisco's cloud computing strategy in a presentation titled "A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Inter-Cloud" . The presentation outlined the four tenets of Cisco's cloud computing strategy:

  • Build Right Products (Unified Fabric, Unified Compute, Virtualization Aware)
  • Technology (Enhanced IP core with tight coupling to software)
  • Multiphased (Standalone Clouds to Enterprise-Class to Inter-Cloud)
  • Open Standards (Accelerate Cloud deployment and federation through Cloud standards)
  • Services/References SW (Services-led Cloud blueprints with reference software stacks)

The presentation also describes and end goal as a time "when enterprise applications can seamlessly move between their internal and external clouds leveraging the elasticity and multi-tenancy that a cloud infrastructure offers".

An "Inter-cloud" standards and protocol roadmap is also offered.
