Google Cloud and Cisco offer developers hybrid cloud toolsets

With it, enterprise app developers will be able to access cloud APIs, while cloud developers will be able to access enterprise APIs and on-premises resources, with top security measures in place.

The trend of companies and consumers opting to access computing power as services hosted online, instead of owning and maintaining their own software, has led to booming growth for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft's Azure offerings. Cisco has continued its efforts in cloud management, but with Google Cloud as a partner, the vendor is able extend its reach deeper into the public cloud.

Google has partnered with Cisco to develop a hybrid cloud based on Kubernetes running on GCP and Cisco's HyperFlex, on-premise IT.

Together, we're working on a complete solution to develop, run, secure and monitor workloads, enabling customers to optimize their existing investments, plan their cloud migration at their own pace and avoid lock-in.

"While hybrid is here to stay, that's not to say that it's easy", Kip Compton, Cisco's vice president of cloud platform and solutions, wrote in a blog post.

Cisco, which in May announced job cuts, announced this week it cut a deal to buy United States cloud communications firm BroadSoft for an overall purchase price of approximately $1.9 billion. "This is what we hear customers asking for", said Google Cloud CEO Diane Greene.

The two companies need a boost in the corporate computing market amid increasing competition from cloud-computing pioneer Amazon.com Inc. and corporate-tech veteran Microsoft Corp. We offer a number of pay-as-you-go models for cloud services, with pricing models described on the Google Cloud pricing page and the Apigee pricing page. Both companies are using open-source technologies to give customers more flexibility. Developers will be able to create new applications in the cloud or on-premises consistently using the same tools, runtime and production environment. Thus, Istio makes it easier for developers to implement new, more portable services, and creates a separate policy-based platform to configure and manage those services centrally.

Cisco and Google Wednesday unveiled a blockbuster sweeping hybrid cloud partnership that provides the networking giant with a seamless bridge to next-generation public cloud technologies including the Google Kubernetes container orchestration platform.

The hybrid cloud service through the partnership will become available next year.

Rather than manage all of their IT services on premises, or take them all into the cloud, many companies today choose to do a bit of both. Working with Kubernetes, Istio aims to provide a uniform means of connecting and managing micro-services. "A dramatic expansion of the services available in the major public clouds, a heightened focus by cloud platform suppliers on enterprise customers, and major improvements in performance and security have driven the growth in public cloud adoption". Software components from Cisco will be licensed on an annual subscription basis that include one-, three- and five-year terms and the infrastructure sold on a perpetual basis.
