Cisco Systems Inc. is teaming up with Microsoft Corp. to make it easier for enterprises to run containerized Kubernetes applications on-premises and in the Azure cloud. In a blog post today, Kip Compton, Cisco’s senior vice president of Cloud Platform and Solutions, said the companies are making it possible to deploy and manage Kubernetes clusters on both the on-premises Cisco Container Platform and the cloud-based Azure Kubernetes Service. Users can now deploy and manage their Kubernetes clusters via a single tool using common identity and control policies, he said.
Software containers are used to host the components of applications that can run on any type of computing infrastructure without changes. Kubernetes is an open-source system used to manage large clusters of those containers. It enables users to build applications and services that span multiple containers, schedule them and scale them as necessary, and update them more easily.
