Enterprises, service providers, small businesses, and governments are looking for cloud solutions to solve some of their biggest business and technology challenges: reducing costs, creating new levels of efficiency, and facilitating innovative business models that drive revenue growth. Cisco believes that each customer and situation requires a different cloud solution: some private, some public, some consuming services, some communities integrating multiple clouds together. The challenge and opportunity of the world of many clouds is to bring together cloud computing, the network, and storage, spread across many clouds comprised of thousands upon thousands of content/data that must work together on-demand and securely.

Cisco has the network platform that enables the cloud (within the cloud/DC, between clouds, and beyond to the customer) and compute DNA along with an ecosystem of partners to enable this world of many clouds working together.

When implemented successfully, the cloud will allow cloud providers to tightly align technology to business priorities; service providers to deliver new services and content to their customers; governments and emerging countries to consolidate and advance technology faster; and consumers to instantly access new services.

  • In traditional data center, there are silos of infrastructure resources that are dedicated to specific applications or projects. It has become well documented, that these silos have led to lower resource utilization and an inability to share. One of the challenges facing IT is what is known as shadow IT. Shadow IT is the term used to describe IT systems and solutions that are built and used inside organizations without organizational approval. Shadow IT is considered by employees to be an important source of innovation as employees believe that IT is unable to accommodate their project needs. Shadow IT is challenging for IT from a support perspective as well as compliance issues of data that is created unofficially and uncontrolled. Cloud initiatives are allowing IT to change their role from an infrastructure provider to a business partner that acts as a service broker to end users. In this role, IT’s job is to optimize the options available in their portfolio from private, public or even hybrid solutions. To do this they take into account:What is available internally for the particular project or application requirement Urgency of the deployment – is it immediate, within x amount of days How much capability or the need for scalability is required for the given project compared to what is available internally Are there any opportunities to leverage existing assetsIs it financially feasible to do this project on premises or off premises Does off premises align with IT governance, policy and compliance policies

  • There is a 1:1 mapping between a POD and its resource provider(vCenter+UCS, vCloud Director, OpenStack, or Amazon EC2), but any number of PODs can be defined.
  • Analysts estimate that between 2012 and 2015, 78% of all enterprise companies will deploy a private cloud. 50% of these companies also indicate a plan to use or are using hybrid clouds today to combine server infrastructure on-premises with off-premises providers. The drivers for hybrid cloud in the enterprise are: IT flexibility, reduced costs and a faster, more flexible response to market and business needs. Because the enterprise cannot dictate what hardware the cloud provider will be utilizing, they are looking for a solution that will provide consistency for software or virtual machine infrastructure such as firewalls, security services and application delivery services that are consistent across the cloud and data center. Customers are looking for a solution that solves these problems: Ensuring the consistency of security policies between the on-premises environment and service provider Securing communication and data sharing between the two environments The perception that re-architecting of applications to operate in the shared environment may be necessary Seamless integration across data center and service providers
  • At its core, VNMC is a network management tool that will allow the operation of day-to-day activities, including network infrastructure provisioning and VM (virtual machine)/workload migration across a variety of networks. We are expecting to expand VNMC’s capabilities to Microsoft Hyper-V in our next release, and have already announced the next major release of VNMC 3.0, or VNMC InterCloud shipping later this year which will support hybrid cloud environments in the Nexus 1000V InterCloud solution.Enterprises are increasingly moving to hybrid clouds to gain the benefits of public clouds - agility, on-demand provisioning, pay-as-you-go capability, and elastic scalability - along with the benefits of private clouds. Private clouds have some advantages, allowing enterprises to design and customize their infrastructure and control security. However, private clouds are usually less agile than a public cloud and can be expensive to run to meet peak demand. Cisco Nexus 1000V InterCloud is designed to bridge enterprise and cloud provider deployments in a secure and consistent manner. Based on Cisco Nexus 1000V Series Switches and industry-standard Cisco Cisco Nexus 1000V InterCloud (Figure 1) provides: NX-OS Software, ●  Secure Layer 2 network connectivity between the enterprise data center and the public cloud ●  Consistent network policies and services across private and public clouds ●  Virtual form factor designed for easy deployment ●  and finally, single pane of management– this is where VNMC InterCloud comes in.With Cisco Nexus 1000V InterCloud, the enterprise network can be securely extended to the cloud, with enterprise network configurations such as VLANs and policies extended to the cloud. Workloads can be migrated from the enterprise data center to the public cloud while retaining the same IP addresses, thus avoiding the need to redesign the application.
  • Cloud computing can become more valuable if the semi-automatic creation and management of application layer services can be ported across alternative cloud implementation environments so that the services remain interoperable. This core TOSCA specification provides a language to describe service components and their relationships using a service topology, and it provides for describing the management procedures that create or modify services using orchestration processes. The combination of topology and orchestration in a Service Template describes what is needed to be preserved across deployments in different environments to enable interoperable deployment of cloud services and their management throughout the complete lifecycle (e.g. scaling, patching, monitoring, etc.) when the applications are ported over alternative cloud environments.
