Cisco Launches CloudVerse for Enterprises
Bangalore: A recent report states that CIOs will be spending between 40 percent and 80 percent of their IT budgets on cloud services in the next five years. It also said that according to CIOs, lower capital spending on IT, lower overall IT costs and greater technical agility make cloud computing adoption inevitable. This shows the enormous opportunity the cloud space is opening up to. So it is only natural that one of the big players, Cisco, is all set to tap into the opportunity. Cisco launched its CloudVerse, a framework that combines the foundational elements needed to enable organizations to build, manage and connect public, private and hybrid clouds, in India. CloudVerse combines the key cloud elements, unified data center, cloud intelligent network, and cloud applications and services together to enabling businesses to realize all of the benefits of clouds. The benefits include improved agility, better economics, enhanced security, and a dynamic, assured experience.

"We are witnessing a paradigm shift in computing with the emergence of cloud. Virtually every business sector in India is betting big on cloud computing. Cisco CloudVerse will fundamentally change business models by enabling IT to be delivered as a service," says Rajesh Rege, Senior Vice-President for Data Centre, Virtualization and Cloud Business, Cisco India and SAARC. Moving from a traditional virtualized data center to a CloudVerse cloud can reduce IT total cost of ownership (TCO - opex and capex) by up to 50 percent and reduce the time to offer new cloud services from weeks to minutes. CIOs of many big organizations including, ACS, Fujitsu, NWN, LinkedIn, Orange Business Services, Qualcomm, Silicon Valley Bank, Telecom Italia, Telefonica S.A., Telstra, and Terremark, have already adapted this offering. Apart from this, over 70 percent of leading cloud providers are also using Cisco CloudVerse on their journey to the cloud.

Cisco's cloud index study predicts that over 50 percent of computing workloads in data centers will be cloud based by 2014, and that global cloud traffic will grow over 12 times by 2015, to 1.6 zettabytes per year. The study also suggests that the explosive growth in clouds requires advanced capabilities that allow the data center and network to work together to support end-to-end cloud application delivery. With this new launch Cisco is laying foundation to tackle this issue.
