Cisco is significantly spreading its data-center technology to help customers grow and control hybrid, multicloud or hyperconverged edge environments.In a series of announcements at its Cisco Live! customer gathering in Barcelona, the company sought to expand its data center-influence by extending its Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) to the cloud, extending its hyperconverged HyperFlex offering to the edge and bolstering the management capabilities of its CloudCenter offering. ACI is Cisco’s software-defined networking (SDN) data-center package, but it also delivers the company’s Intent-Based Networking technology, which brings customers the ability to automatically implement network and policy changes on the fly and ensure data delivery. Cisco has now extended ACI with ACI Anywhere to the cloud – specifically Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure environments. The idea is that customers will have the flexibility to run and control applications anywhere they want across private or public clouds or at the edge and while maintaining consistent network policies across their entire domain.
