Frederic Lardinois: Google and Cisco announce hybrid cloud partnership

Google and Cisco today announced a new partnership around helping their customers build more efficient hybrid cloud solutions. Unsurprisingly, given Google’s recent focus, this partnership centers around the Google-incubated Kubernetes container orchestration tool, as well as the Istio service mesh for connecting and securing microservices across clouds.

“Google Cloud and Cisco are committed to meeting customers wherever they are in their journey to the cloud,” said Diane Greene, the CEO of Google Cloud, in today’s announcement. “This partnership enables developers and IT departments to seamlessly take advantage of the most open, secure tools for building modern applications in a hybrid environment.”
