At Cisco Intercloud CTO Innovation Center, innovative vendors are selected to integrate and build cloud services for customer and market trials. We combine the world’s best ISVs with Cisco’s best to bring unique innovations to our customers. At Cisco Live 2015 in San Diego, we launched one such solution – Intercloud Microservices with Docker, Nirmata, and the Cisco ONE Enterprise Suite. The Intercloud Microservices solution enables a new breed of DevOps – where business get unprecedented agility at scale using cloud-native architectures, and unprecedented flexibility in choosing best-of-breed Cisco Intercloud providers across the globe.
On behalf of the development team. I’m pleased to announce the 0.3.0 release of Microservices Infrastructure. In the weeks since 0.2, we’ve added a number of features and improvements.

What is it?
Microservices Infrastructure is software that launches servers and then configures them to support a wide range of applications – like continuous delivery or realtime data processing.
Businesses have been and will continue to be disrupted by software agility and innovation. If you have any questions, just ask, if they are still in business, Movie Rental Companies (Netflix), Taxi Companies (Uber), and Retail Companies (Amazon) to just name a few areas (companies that disrupted an industry with Software). Software defined disruption has changed the landscape and continues to drive tremendous business value like never before. What’s most exciting is that we have not seen anything yet compared to what the Internet of Everything (IoE) will disrupt! To understand software disruption better and determine the innovation opportunities it helps to take a look at the typical devops model today, challenges, and opportunities.
The typical devops model is represented the figure below:

How quickly can your organization stand-up a new application or deploy new services? Most customers tell me, “not fast enough!” I am clearly hearing from them that the new standard expectation across the organization is to receive precise data center resources in “internet time,” easily and definitely on-demand.
But customers are not the only ones affected by these new expectation standards. Application developers also expect to receive the resources they need to support their efforts within one hour — without a lot of process meetings and repetitive, slow paperwork. They want what they want, when they need it, which is always now! Can’t get it now? Out comes the credit card and they go on a shopping spree to outside resources.
Developers don’t worry about security, governance or quality of service. If you are in operations, or you’re a C-level executive, you care. You need to meet compliance guidelines. So how can you get everyone on the same team, working together so the organization can succeed, the old “win-win-win?”
At CiscoLive Milan in January, we introduced the Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite. Watch this replay of our live broadcast.
