Kubernetes – 100% Upstream, Simple, Fast, Supported

You may have seen – over here at Cisco we’ve just released a new Cisco Container Platform (CCP) together with learning labs to learn the basics of CCP and its API.

CCP aims to take away the pain from deploying and maintaining your container platforms on premise for your entire organisation. It uses Kubernetes to achieve this, being jointly developed by an enterprise-level partnership between Cisco and those lovely folks over at Google Cloud, providing enterprise support via Cisco.

We use 100% upstream kubernetes, so no secret tweaks to get it to integrate with other kubernetes deployments in the cloud – any cluster you spin up (super simply, in seconds, may we add) will come with the exact API you have in kubernetes deployments elsewhere. Everyone loves some good, simple multi-cloud action.

CCP for Kubernetes clustersCisco Container Platform gives you all the pieces you need
to build Kubernetes clusters in minutes.

CCP throw in some great user management, monitoring, and analytics smarts so you’ve got a pretty awesome solution to your company’s developer needs.
