Cisco has unveiled its first Hybrid Solution for Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services(AWS) that makes running new containerized applications simple.

According to Cisco, organizations want the ability to develop and deploy applications anywhere they want. Across public and private clouds, without constraints. The Cisco Hybrid Solution for Kubernetes on AWS makes it easy for customers to run production-grade Kubernetes on-premises.  This is achieved by configuring on-premises Kubernetes environments to be consistent with Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) and by combining Cisco’s networking, security, management and monitoring software with AWS’ world-class cloud services. This enables customers to focus on building and using applications, instead of being constrained by where they run.

This new solution helps containerized applications to be deployed and managed more easily across on-premises and the AWS cloud. The management of on-premises Kubernetes infrastructure is simplified with a common set of tools on-premises and on AWS. It also allows containerized applications to work with existing resources and production environments.

Kip Compton, SVP, Cloud Platform and Solutions, Cisco
Today, most customers are forced to choose between developing applications on-premises or in the cloud. This can create a complex mix of environments, technologies, teams and vendors. But they shouldn’t have to make a choice. 

Terry Wise, Global VP of Channels & Alliances, AWS
Our customers want solutions that are designed for the cloud and Cisco’s integration with Amazon EKS will make it easier for them to rapidly deploy and run containerized applications across both Cisco-based on-premises environments and the AWS cloud.
