From a Cisco standpoint, the partnership comes as the tech giant continues to pivot away from traditional markets, evident through through plans to acquire BroadSoft in an attempt to reinvent itself as a software and cloud vendor. Following those leaders in third and fourth place are IBM and Google, respectively.

However, that is the direction many enterprises are going. For example, Microsoft a year ago announced its Azure Stack private cloud solution.

Google and Cisco will combine their strengths to offer a new hybrid cloud-computing service aimed at business customers. "This approach helps enterprises get up and running in the cloud at their own pace, while preserving the value in their existing on-premise investments". It also will give them the flexibility to decide which workloads to run on the public cloud and which to leave behind the firewall, and to move those workloads between the two as necessary.

"Our partnership with Google gives our customers the very best cloud has to offer - agility and scale, coupled with enterprise-class security and support", said Cisco chief executive Chuck Robbins. "It also takes advantage of Cisco's best-of-breed capabilities, including the ability to extend Cisco's network and security policies and configurations and monitor application behavior across hybrid cloud environments". All of this could help it gain traction against its larger cloud rivals.

The partnership is seen as an attempt to catch up with Amazon Web services, which dominates the fast-growing cloud computing market.

"Google Cloud and Cisco are committed to meeting customers wherever they are in their journey to the cloud", said Diane Greene, the CEO of Google Cloud, in today's announcement.

"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", Boden wrote today on the Google blog. "We wanted to do it in a modern way that would enable continuous rapid innovation".

The joint Cisco and Google Cloud hybrid solution helps developers leverage managed Kubernetes, GCP Service Catalog, Cisco networking and security, and Istio authentication and service mesh monitoring.

"Our data also shows 48% of infrastructure decision-makers expect to use public cloud platforms by the end of 2017", said Forrester.

The solution is created to get apps and services deployed, managed and secured across both on-prem environments and the Google Cloud Platform.

At the heart of this architecture are open source platforms, Kubernetes and Istio.

Google also noted that Apigee, the API management company it acquired past year, will be the glue that will allow legacy workloads to connect to the more modern applications that developers will bring to this solution.

The hybrid cloud partnership will first roll out to a limited number of customers during the first part of 2018, with general availability planned for later in the year. "A dramatic expansion of the services available in the major public clouds, a heightened focus by cloud platform suppliers on enterprise customers, and major improvements in performance and security have driven the growth in public cloud adoption".
