Cisco Aggressively Works with Red Hat to Make Cloud Computing Services Cheaper

The partnership between two giants to make cloud computing services cheaper would unleash the power of Internet of Things (IoT).

CiscoGREATRESPONDER.COM – This was announced this weekend by Red hat that both Cisco Systems and Red Hat are aggressively working to enhance the security, performance, cost efficiency and reliability of the cloud computing services. This partnership was agreed upon recently to strengthen the concept of Internet of Things IoT in the domain of cloud computing services based on the OpenStack platform. It was further elaborated in the official announcement this week that the vendors are facing serious challenges in the handling of big data; and they are pursuing different strategies based on cloud computing services to make it easier to handle. The development of Internet of Things would be very helpful for these people to manage their big data in the cloud computing ecosystem.

This aggressive approach of both giants would enable the clients to avail the cloud computing services based OpenStack on very cheap rates. This collaborative approach is being undertaken to substantiate the dream of Cisco Systems related to the ‘Application Centric Infrastructure’ based on cloud environment.

redhat“Red Hat has a very large ecosystem and Cisco does as well, so, when you put those two ecosystems together, that provides a lot of opportunities from a vendor standpoint,” said the general manager of Cloud Product Strategy at Red Hat Company, Mr. Bryan Che in his official statement. He further added, “The partnership will allow Cisco to integrate its UCS gear with Red Hat’s OpenStack and open source distributions. OpenStack will be combined with Cisco’s UCS servers, Nexus switches and management software. The Cisco-Red Hat integrated systems will be available in different editions, including a starter edition for private clouds, an advanced edition for large private clouds and an advanced ACI edition for deploying scale-out clouds”.

It is very important to note that the dream project of Cisco systems based on Application Specific Infrastructure is a comprehensive approach to manage the big data and other applications in the cloud computing environment at very cheap rates. At present the complexity of the network to manage the big data and other company information is very high, and it requires huge money to manage. Although, Cisco is already helping its customer through two different approaches – Software Defined Networking SDN, and Network Function Virtualization NFV –, which costs them a bit higher than the anticipated cost.
