On October 25th, Cisco and Google announced a new technology partnership, Goodzilla. This will enable Cisco customers to run and move their applications between Cisco-powered data centers and the Google Cloud Platform in a new kind of hybrid cloud.
The glue that will bind them together: Kubernetes and Istio.
Kubernetes is an open-source container manager. Originally developed by Google as Borg, today, it’s controlled by the The Linux Foundation’s Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). It has quickly become the most popular container orchestration program. Except for Amazon Web Services (AWS), it’s available on all major public clouds and works with all containers.
