  • IT departments are under greater pressure than ever before. The business demand for greater access to larger amounts of information is increasing geometrically. At the same time, the pressure to reduce the growth in IT budgets is also increasing. Meeting the geometric increases in demands requires better tools than today’s linear development environment can provide.
  • How did other industries (such as automobile, aviation) solve this problem? With automation.
  • Rather than hand-crafting applications, new services need to be developed with tools that create standardized parts, using a standardized processes that run on the same infrastructure. PaaS moves the IT dev/ops process from the world of hand-crafted applications to the next generation of IT manufactured services. PaaS standardizes the most commonly used tools for developing services, such as PHP, Ruby, Python, Ruby, and others (e.g. MariaDB), as well as tools like Jenkins for continuous integration. OpenShift PaaS is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the leader in the enterprise Linux market.

    PaaS makes the leap from a Craftwork methodology to an Assembly Line methodology possible. PaaS both streamlines and standardizes the Application Development process.
  • OpenShift by Red Hat is among the leaders in both the ability to execute, and the vision for application platforms. Red Hat has been a leader in the OpenSource with RHEL for many years, and brings the experience and expertise to OpenShift as well.
  • As customer mature beyond basic virtual machine provisioning, Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud (Cisco IAC) delivers the critical foundational layer for deploying and managing cloud-based computing in a holistic and unified manner.

    Cisco IAC provides the essential automated management and orchestration that enables organizations to control and manage cloud-based services transparently throughout their lifecycle. Cisco IAC can cover a diverse range of cloud deployments and is a flexible solution that can scale from initial cloud deployments to large-scale enterprise-wide initiatives to deliver maximum value to customers.

    Cisco IAC is the point from which organizations can burst into hybrid cloud computing as well as multi-hypervisor platforms. Solution accelerators are community-based solutions that extend the management capability of Cisco IAC. The most popular is the multi-cloud solution accelerator which allows Cisco IAC to manage vCloud Director, Amazon EC2 and OpenStack.

    Cisco UCS Director has begun the integration process with Cisco IAC to deliver the ability to recognize UCS Director as a node on the multi-cloud accelerator and provision virtual machines just as managing Amazon EC2. Additionally, customers can provision physical storage into their existing virtual data centers and associate the file store as appropriate.

    Via IAC, you’ll be able to select (and allow users to select) capabilities that are delivered through UCS Director with the single touch in IAC. IAC requests an asset from UCS Director and UCS Director does the configuration of, say, a FlexPod

    World-class service portal and service catalogue that creates a standardized set of services to the “end-users”

    Integrates cloud connectors to integrate with public/hybrid clouds and the Nexus 1000V InterCloud to manage the overall solution holistically.

    Integrate via API with other management platforms so you can leverage other system management that you have
  • Ordering a new service should be as easy as ordering on Amazon! Cisco Prime abstracts the organizational and technical complexities from the user, making IaaS, PaaS, and other services as easy to order as a service on Amazon!
  • Seamless addition of new PaaS nodes to broker resources (cgroups)
    Extends scale-out/scale-back from gears to nodes
