SAN DIEGO, June 10, 2015 – At Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, Peak 10 demonstrated a real world use case with Cisco Intercloud Fabric alongside Cisco.
Peak 10 is one of selected Cisco Powered providers in the Cisco Intercloud Partner Ecosystem. As customers ask for an alternative to commodity-based application development, Peak 10 has developed an enterprise-class application development solution with Peak 10’s Cisco Powered Hybrid Cloud embedded with Cisco Intercloud Fabric.
Cisco Intercloud Fabric is a software solution that allows organizations to easily combine and place workloads across different public or private clouds as needed, while maintaining associated network and security policies. With robust development toolsets and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) provided by Peak 10, companies can develop applications in reliable and secure environments that meet enterprise requirements for scalability, reliability and governance and seamlessly convert them into an enterprise-class production environment using Cisco Intercloud Fabric.
“We are among the list of companies worldwide that have spent the last several months working closely with Cisco to bring the Intercloud to market by testing Cisco Intercloud Fabric in our labs,” said Jeff Spalding, chief operating officer for Peak 10. “Our regulatory compliant and highly secure Cisco Powered cloud infrastructure offers companies with both development and production needs the ability to achieve true governance from the beginning and throughout the life cycle of their applications.”
“Peak 10’s consultative approach and focus on regulatory compliance is now augmented by Cisco Intercloud Fabric, a highly secure, open, and flexible hypervisor-agnostic cloud interconnect technology,” said Gee Rittenhouse, Senior Vice President of Cisco’s Cloud and Virtualization Group. “With Cisco Intercloud Fabric seamlessly integrated in Peak 10 Enterprise Cloud, the entire application lifecycle is addressed by providing a reliable and secure developer environment, as well as enterprise requirements for choice, control and compliance.”
During Cisco Live, Peak 10 delivered a presentation entitled, “Are Hybrid IT Solutions in Your Future?” on June 9 in the Cisco Theater. Peak 10 demonstrated when and why to consider Hybrid IT solutions and defined Peak 10’s approach to Hybrid IT and each of its potential components, strategies of how to get started, and real-world use cases, including the Intercloud Fabric. Also, there was a Cisco ICF demo conducted on June 9 in the Cisco Powered Booth.
