Cisco has added new features to its core cloud and computing packages to better manage and support distributed applications.

The enhancements affect Cisco’s Intersight cloud management system, UCS X-Series server and HyperFlex hyperconverged system.

The idea is to provide tools that offer flexibility and manageability while increasing performance and reducing the costs of modern cloud-based apps and workloads, said DD Dasgupta, vice president of Cisco’s Cloud & Compute Product Management group. 

Cisco is extending its Intersight support for Kubernetes, which had managed only Cisco Kubernets and only on-premises. The upgrade, Intersight Kubernetes Service Attached Clusters, provides a single place for IT pros to look at and manage all their Kubernetes clusters, including those running on Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud platforms, with plans to add Google Cloud support in the future.

“Many times IT doesn’t know these clusters exist because some part of the organization spun-up a Kubernetes cluster for some specific workload and didn’t tell anyone. This Intersight feature will eliminate that from happening and causing problems,” Dasgupta said.
