A cloud is a powerful combination of cloud computing, networking, storage, management solutions, and business applications that facilitate a new generation of IT and consumer services. These services are available on demand, and delivered economically, without compromising security or functionality.
We are moving to an interconnected "world of many clouds," where people will have access to cloud services anytime, on any device, anywhere in the world.
Why It Matters
Enterprises, service providers, small businesses, and governments are looking for cloud solutions to solve some of their biggest business and technology challenges. A solution to these challenges requires an approach that fully integrates the three pillars of cloud: cloud applications and services, data centers, and networks.
Cisco enables a world of many clouds – connecting people and organizations within a cloud, between clouds, and beyond the clouds to the end user. Only Cisco and its ecosystem partners can provide solutions that deliver people-centric collaboration, an assured end-user experience, dynamic and efficient cloud infrastructure, context-aware security, and accelerated deployment.
Cisco recognizes that every organization has its own specific needs and implementation preferences. For that reason, Cisco provides you with a wide range of tools, partners, and expert Cloud Enablement Services to make it easy to build and deploy clouds, offer cloud services, or consume applications from partner-hosted clouds or the Cisco Collaboration Cloud.
