Cisco Partner Summit 2017: Vendor highlights Google pact
DALLAS — @Cisco is making hybrid clouds and multi-cloud management a key theme at the vendor’s annual partner meeting. The company tipped its hand a bit on Oct. 25 when it announced a hybrid cloud partnership with @Google, just days before the opening of Cisco Partner Summit 2017, which runs Nov. 1-2. The hybrid cloud offering combines the Cisco #HyperFlex #hyperconverged infrastructure offering as the #privatecloud component and #GoogleCloudPlatform as the public cloud element. #Containers and their management via the #opensource @Kubernetes platform figure prominently in the #hybridcloud alliance.
