The use of hybrid cloud or Intercloud technology is growing increasingly popular. A recent study supports that IT managers want a mix of public and private cloud in their enterprises. In fact, 60% of the 400 enterprises surveyed see the hybrid cloud model as the way to go.
And for good reason: The same secure, open and flexible solutions that can be found within your private data center can be implemented with a hybrid cloud set-up, providing the best of both worlds: private cloud control and flexible public clouds. And when the need arises to expand your data center, creating an Intercloud to extend your own data center and cloud capacity when you need it is an excellent option for any business of any size.
Next week, we invite you to join our informative cloud webcast: Cisco Solutions for Open and Secure Intercloud Workload Migration. You’ll gain insight as to how your organization will benefit from an Intercloud approach. The conversation will be focused on how your business can:
- Extend your company’s capabilities, store more data and increase resources as you need them. Data centers cost to both build and operate, and InterCloud makes the public cloud an extension of your cloud.
- Maintain your sense of security by applying your same quality of service restrictions and policies to your hybrid cloud. You may be “renting” the capacity, but for all intended purposes, you own it.
- Keep your current cloud provider of choice and even link to more than one if you choose. The same traits are replicated in each instance of your data center.
When Cisco’s Global Intercloud was introduced, it completely changed the direction of how we utilized the hybrid cloud. It also showed us the need that CIOs across the globe had for a customizable, secure and high-performance data center expansion solution. And now is your chance to see why we’ve answered with Intercloud.
Registration is open, mark your calendar and join us for this webcast (available on demand):
Cisco Solutions for Open and Secure Intercloud Workload Migration. Join our webcast to learn how the Cisco InterCloud solution helps ensure the same network security, quality of service (QoS), and access control policies previously enforced in the data center are implemented in the public cloud. Available on demand.

We had a great Cisco Partner Summit last week. In case you missed any of the information, be sure to check out the day one, day two and day three recaps of this week’s event.
All this week, we will be wrapping up our coverage of Cisco Partner Summit 2014 with more executive interviews, additional thoughts from our partner ambassadors and a final recap on Friday, April 4.
To get started with this week, I would like to share with you my interview with Rob Lloyd, President, Development and Sales. Rob took some time last week to sit down with the Social Media team and discuss what’s on partners’ minds. He also broke down the Cisco Global Intercloud announcement for us into what Cisco partners should really focus on moving forward.
It was great to sit down with Rob and get his takeaways for partners. Continue to watch the Cisco Channels Blog this week and as always, let me know how we are doing in the comments section below.

In a previous blog post, I discussed some considerations organizations should keep in mind when selecting a cloud provider. After all, in today’s world of many clouds, organizations must have confidence in their decision – both from a technology and business perspective. This week Cisco announced plans to build a global Intercloud – a network of clouds – together with a set of partners.
Partners are an essential part of Cisco’s DNA. Only through the help of our partners can we provide customers with the world’s largest network of clouds. So far, over 200 Cisco cloud partners have already created 430 Cisco Powered services worldwide. With the addition of Cisco Cloud Services, together, we will have an unmatched portfolio of enterprise class offers.
Cisco Powered is the power behind the cloud: cisco.com/go/ciscopowered
Cisco is expanding the Cisco Powered program to include Cisco Cloud Services. Cisco will sell these new services through channel partners and directly to end customers. Partners who develop Cisco Powered services can extend their portfolio with unique Cisco technologies such as WebEx, Cisco Cloud Web Security and Meraki, as well as third party applications. This provides a significant opportunity to leverage the scale of a global Intercloud. In doing so, partners can tap into new revenue streams while improving profitability, and business relevance.
