The complete guide to Cisco® Intercloud: use cases, planning, and deployment Using Cisco Intercloud technologies, you can seamlessly integrate private, hybrid, and public clouds–securely providing the right resources at will, with consistent control.

Now, four leading experts thoroughly introduce these powerful new technologies. Writing for CTOs, IT/network managers, security architects, product managers, application owners, service architects, and consultants, they explain both underlying Intercloud concepts and practical use cases.

Sharing deep architectural insight, the authors focus on key technical enablers, from virtualization to autonomic management and advanced protocols. They also address the business challenges service providers will face in federated Intercloud relationships. Illuminating the Intercloud with cutting-edge customer examples, they also describe a phased pathway towards coherent deployment. You’ll discover how the Intercloud can improve agility, portability, cost, and speed–and how to start transforming its potential into reality.

  • Explore the Intercloud from both a technical and business standpoint
  • Understand the role of Intercloud federations, exchanges, and brokers
