The Cisco CloudCenter™ hybrid cloud management platform has a simple architecture, with two primary software components that support a wide range of use cases:
- Cisco CloudCenter Manager: The interface in which users model, deploy, and manage applications on and between a data center and a cloud infrastructure, and in which administrators control clouds, users, and governance rules.
- Cisco CloudCenter Orchestrator: Resident in every data center or cloud region; automates application deployment along with infrastructure (computing, storage, and networking) provisioning and configuration based on the application’s requirements.
The Cisco CloudCenter solution includes a number of additional architectural features, such as cloud-independent application profiles, that improve speed and flexibility while offering comprehensive administrator visibility and control that spans the boundaries of applications, clouds, and users.
This document summarizes the main architectural features that make the Cisco CloudCenter solution a unique and powerful choice for any IT organization or service provider seeking to deploy and manage applications in a mix of data center and cloud environments.
