By Chris Chabris By Chris ChagrisCisco and Cisco Systems have announced that they are expanding their cloud computing platform from the Internet of Things (IoT) to the cloud.
The announcement comes on the heels of Cisco’s announcement last week that it had completed its acquisition of cloud service provider SeriSoft and will be adding more than 500 million devices to its portfolio.
The new cloud service will provide a “simplified cloud experience for cloud computing” and will provide “the best value to consumers,” the two companies said in a statement.
The new service will be built on top of SeriOS, a cloud computing operating system designed for small- to medium-sized enterprises and small-scale enterprises.
SeriOs can be configured to host virtual machines and servers for cloud applications, as well as virtualization platforms such as VMware, VMware ESXi, or Hyper-V.
In a blog post announcing the service, Cisco said that it will use SeriSys’ existing SeriCloud platform to power the new service.
The SeriSolar platform is already supported by more than 200 of the most popular cloud-based services, including Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google App Engine, and IBM’s Compute Engine.
Cisco said that the new SeriCockers will also be built using Cisco’s new Seriex Cloud Platform.
SerieX is a cloud platform designed for business-to-business applications.
It provides the infrastructure for large-scale, multi-tenant data centers.
SeriCocksers will be the company’s first customers, and will initially support only the company and its Cloud Core Infrastructure (CCI) software.
SeriaX will continue to support Cisco’s Cloud Core Platform, but with the new cloud platform, SeriCs servers will run on Cisco SeriX as well.
Citing Cisco’s long-term focus on enterprise cloud computing, the company said that Cisco’s “unprecedented agility in our cloud computing business will deliver consistent, cost-effective and secure cloud computing solutions to customers in the U.S., Europe and beyond.”
SeriSys is currently based in Zurich, Switzerland.
Serisys CEO Ralf Fuchs told the Wall Street Journal that the company had been planning to launch the new server in the first half of 2017, and it was expected to go live this year.
Consequently, Cisco’s SeriSer is a server designed for the cloud and enterprise, with its hardware components built on the same Seri platform as SeriBase, Cisco Serieq, Seriuos servers, and Cisco Serix.
