Cisco unveils cloud ready networking application

The new application is designed to enable users to securely connect to cloud services

By CBR Staff Writer

Networking firm Cisco has introduced its Cloud Connected Solution, a new product that delivers cloud-enabled routing and wide area network (WAN) optimisation platforms, along with Cloud Connector software and services.

The new application is designed to enable users to securely connect to cloud services. It also helps organisations implement cloud computing and accelerate the deployment of cloud services while delivering an optimal user experience at minimal cost.

The new product application includes a new software called Cloud Connectors, which is embedded into the Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR) G2 platform along with services that improve the performance, security and availability of cloud applications.

The open architecture of the Cloud Connectors helps service providers to develop third-party Cloud Connectors to deliver differentiated services to their customers.

It also includes Cisco WAAS 5.0 with AppNav enables customers to virtualise WAN optimisation resources by pooling them together into an on-demand resource that includes the best latency performance.

The AppNav provides an elastic "scale-as-you-grow" application deployment model that enables enterprise-wide application acceleration and performance visibility.

Cloud Connected Solution also includes a Cloud Services Router (CSR), a virtual router that lets enterprises extend their virtual private networks (VPNs) into the cloud.
