According to a recent press release, “Application innovation is at the heart of the digital economy. A new era of apps is redefining what data centers are and need to be capable of supporting. Because today, the data center is no longer a fixed place. It exists wherever data is created, processed and used. That is why Cisco is announcing a new architecture that extends the data center to everywhere that data lives and everywhere applications are deployed. To bring this ‘data center anywhere’ vision to life, Cisco is introducing a range of innovations across networking, hyperconvergence, security and automation. They include: (1) The expansion of ACI into the cloud with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure environments. (2) The extension of HyperFlex into branch offices and remote locations to power applications at the edge. (3) Enhancements to CloudCenter to help customers manage the lifecycle of applications across multiple cloud environments.”
Roland Acra, senior vice president and general manager of the Data Center Business Group at Cisco, commented, “Enterprises should be able to deploy applications based on the needs of their business, not the limitations of their technology… Customers want to deploy applications and manage data across a range of diverse platforms, from on-premises to cloud-based. That is why we are taking the ‘center’ out of the data center. Today, Cisco is helping our customers expand their reach into every cloud, every data center, and every branch.”
