Cisco’s customers can run production grade containers on any infrastructure
In response to customer feedback, Cisco has unveiled support for Kubernetes in its AppDynamics application performance monitoring (APM) suite. The company has also unveiled Cisco CloudCenter 4.9 for Kubernetes.
Cisco CloudCenter was formerly called CliQr, and could securely deploy and manage applications in multiple environments, including on-premises and on private and public clouds.
CloudCenter 4.9 was made available first, while AppDynamics for Kubernetes became available on May 9. Sources at Cisco say that customers will now be able to run production-grade containers on any infrastructure, via a combination of Cisco CloudCenter 4.9, Cisco Container Platform, and the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), which is part of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
In an official blog, Kurt Milne from Cisco, said, “Features that make Kubernetes production-grade include automated roll-out and rollback, auto-scaling, and selfhealing of containerised applications (among other things).”
Cisco CloudCenter and AppDynamics can be purchased as standalone subscription-based software offers, or bundled via the Cisco Multicloud Portfolio as Cloud Consume. Another option is to get them with Cisco HyperFlex through Cisco SmartPlay bundles.
