Cisco and Google Cloud have confirmed their intent to develop an application-centric multicloud networking fabric.
This automated solution means that applications and enterprise networks will be able to share service level agreement settings, security policy and compliance data, to provide predictable application performance and consistent user experience.
The partnership aims to support businesses that are embracing a hybrid and multicloud strategy.
The platform will enable businesses to optimise application stacks by distributing application components to their best locations.
“Expansion of the Google-Cisco partnership represents a significant step forward for enterprises operating across hybrid and multi-cloud environments,” says Shailesh Shukla, Vice President of Products and General Manager, Networking at Google Cloud.
“By linking Cisco’s SD-WAN with Google Cloud’s global network and Anthos, we can jointly provide customers a solution that automates, secures and optimises the end to end network based on the application demands, simplifying hybrid deployments for enterprise organisations.”
