“This joint solution from Google and Cisco facilitates an easy and incremental approach to tapping the benefits of the Cloud. This is what we hear customers asking for,” said Diane Greene, Chief Executive Officer of Google Cloud.

With Google’s open source platforms, Kubernetes and Istio, at the heart of the architecture, developers will be able to create new applications within the cloud using a consistent production platform with a set of tools that will remain familiar.

“Our partnership with Google gives our customers the very best cloud has to offer— agility and scale, coupled with enterprise-class security and support,” said Chuck Robbins, CEO of Cisco. “We share a common vision of a hybrid cloud world that delivers the speed of innovation in an open and secure environment to bring the right solutions to our customers.”

The solution is set to be trialled amongst a limited number of customers early next year, with the general availability planned for later in 2018.
