Under great pressure to support strategic business objectives, IT professionals are rapidly embracing cloud technologies to help their organizations achieve business goals faster, more efficiently and more cost effectively. Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud delivers a public cloud experience for developers, on-premises and behind the corporate firewall. Cisco engineers, deploys and operates the OpenStack-based solution on behalf of customers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
“As a leader in open source systems integration, Cloudwick is a partner to Hortonworks, Cloudera, DataStax and Databricks,” said Mani Chhabra, founder and CEO of Cloudwick. “Cloudwick has more open source, big data systems integration and migration experience than any other company. Now we’re collaborating with Cisco to elevate our game even further. Together we’re delivering a ‘plug-and-play’ solution — from infrastructure through integration — that can help our customers maximize value with advanced analytics.”
“Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud delivers the developer experience of a public cloud, privately. Big data and analytics workloads increasingly demand the predictable performance, security, and economics of a private cloud,” said Scott Sanchez, Director, Cisco Intercloud Services. “Our relationship with Cloudwick allows our mutual customers to get maximum business value from their data, from within their own network, without the distraction of having to manage the underlying platform.”
The announcement comes on the heels of Cloudwick’s recent recognition in Outsourcing Gazette as one of the 25 Most Promising Big Data Outsourcing Vendors (April-May 2015).
