Cisco Working With AWS on Apps That Run in Cloud and Data Centers

Cisco Systems and Amazon Web Services are teaming up to develop software that lets companies run applications in private data centers and in the AWS cloud, Cisco announced in a blog post. The Cisco-AWS partnership, details of which we reported in September 2017, centers on two of the biggest drivers of cloud-related business: Containers, which let applications run across multiple machines and on different cloud providers without changing their underlying code; and Kubernetes, a type of software that automates management of these applications.

For AWS, which announced a partnership with VMware two years ago, working with Cisco could bring access to Fortune 500 companies that buy products from the networking giant. For Cisco, which is already working on similar cloud projects with Google and Microsoft, adding AWS to the mix is a way to serve customers that want to tap into inexpensive server and storage capacity but aren’t ready to move all their computing to public clouds.
