Cisco new Azure Stack ecosystem partner
Cisco joins the club with Dell, HPE and Lenovo as official Microsoft Azure Stack ecosystem partner.
Just like the other three Cisco will be offering an official solution for Microsofts hybrid cloud offering Azure Stack. The Cisco Integrated System for Azure Stack is based on Ciscos popular Unified Computing System.
The idea behind Azure Stack is to bring the power of Azure to your own data center. Azure Stack enables enterprises to run IaaS and PaaS offerings on premises in the same way as in the big public clouds Azure and Microsoft Cloud Deutschland. Look and feel with portals and interfaces are just the same, thus enabling faster and more efficient development and testing, following DevOps scenarios.
If you want to know more about Ciscos offering, find the official announcement here, as well as Microsofts announcements here. Just like with the other official partners expect general availability by Q3 of this year.
