While Google's cloud business has prospered by targeting technology companies, it trails Amazon Web Services, part of ( AMZN ) and Microsoft 's ( MSFT ) Azure service, in the enterprise market.

Google and Cisco Systems Inc. on Wednesday said they are combining their technology to help corporate customers more easily develop software for the cloud.

"This partnership to enhance existing on-premises infrastructure and extend it to the cloud addresses tough operational problems that enterprises have traditionally struggled to solve", Nan Boden, head of global technology partners for Google Cloud, wrote in a post on the company blog.

California-based Cisco is one of the largest makers of internet network equipment, making hardware for a range of industries ranging from telecoms to connected devices.

Injustice 2 Officially Announced For PC
Injustice 2 offers the latest DC fighting game experience that expands on the previous title's larger-than-life showdowns. It also features 10 additional characters as DLC with some odd cameos including Sub-Zero and Raiden from Mortal Kombat.

"This joint solution from Google and Cisco facilitates an easy and incremental approach to tapping the benefits of the Cloud", Google Cloud CEO Diane Greene added.

Cisco, which in May announced job cuts, announced this week it cut a deal to buy U.S. cloud communications firm BroadSoft for an overall purchase price of approximately $1.9 billion. The idea is to have Cisco create a custom version of its Hyperflex hybrid cloud framework with Google to connect to Kubernetes seamlessly.

Some 66% of organizations expect this hybrid cloud expansion to continue, compared to 55% for private cloud and 36% for public cloud.

Those tools include Kubernetes, GCP, Service Catalog, Cisco networking and security, Istio authentication and service mesh monitoring.

Adding to this, Jaitley said that government has decided on the steps needed to sustain the growth momentum. The government will also use 180 billion rupees left from its previously budgeted recapitalisation fund.

Nearly exactly a year ago, VMware and Amazon Web Services took the wraps off the VMware Cloud on AWS partnership, which allows VMware's software-defined data center offering to run on the AWS public cloud.

At the heart of this architecture are open source platforms, Kubernetes and Istio. "We wanted to ultimately offer a consistent environment on-premises and in the cloud so developers could develop wherever they want, and deploy wherever they want".

In addition, the hybrid cloud solution will make use of the Google-developed Kubernetes for containerized application management, as well as the API management system that Google acquired with its $625 million purchase of the firm Apigee a year ago. Availability in the first half of 2018 will be limited to select customers, with a general release planned for later in the year. Google Cloud gets to leverage Cisco's broad enterprise-class product portfolio - including its private cloud suite of offerings - and its customer base of large enterprises to help its hybrid cloud efforts that have included partnerships with other vendors, such as VMware.

Rather than manage all of their IT services on premises, or take them all into the cloud, many companies today choose to do a bit of both. "Kubernetes is about seeding the industry with open source standards for application development and operations that aim to disintermediate workloads from a specific IaaS provider". Cisco software will be licensed on a subscription basis while hardware would be sold. Google has focused on helping cloud customers become more competitive using data analytics and artificial intelligence tools.
