Cisco is progressing towards enhancing hybrid cloud adoption by adding several new features in both software and hardware products to accelerate the multi-cloud adoption process for businesses. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, workplaces are adapting hybrid cloud adoption and shifting to hybrid and remote work environments, making it more important than ever for organizations to be prepared for the challenges that come with handling the massive amount of data from a range of sources across both on-premises and cloud systems.

Cisco’s Vice President of Product Management and Cloud Computing DD Dasgupta said, “While enterprises are standardizing on hybrid, multi-cloud environments, many are still building a strategy to minimize complexity and maximize value with an operational model and tools that deliver flexibility, speed, and simplicity. Cisco has paved the way to help IT operations transform with hybrid cloud, enabling an operational model that allows businesses to adapt quickly, and streamline the secure delivery of applications whether they are in on-premises data centers or the public cloud.”

Businesses are endeavoring for simplicity and flexibility to handle application diversity as the graph of application drives further interactions between people and things. Systems today are becoming more versatile, necessitating more adaptable infrastructure. Simultaneously, IT is supporting enterprises’ quickly evolving business requirements while also accelerating infrastructure and application delivery.

The entire purpose of hyper-converged infrastructure is to make customers’ lives quite convenient by mixing a wide range of components into a pre-engineered, user-friendly system. With new enhanced computing capabilities and flexible high-performance fabric updates, Cisco is consistently progressing to innovate and improve the UCS X-Series.

In addition, Cisco also revealed the Intersight platform, which will be specifically dedicated to working with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), expanding the cloud hybrid platform’s capabilities that involve both inventory and automation of virtual machines in Amazon Web Services (AWS) well as on-premises environments.
