Cisco Cloud Connectors: Bringing Network Intelligence to the Cloud

Increasingly enterprises are adopting cloud services, with more than 50 percent of all workloads being processed in the cloud by 2014 according to the 2011 Cisco® Global Cloud Index. However, cloud services place new demands and requirements on the enterprise network, especially the enterprise WAN in delivering these services to remote and branch-office users. In order to meet these new requirements, Cisco introduces "cloud connectors" for enterprise routing platforms.

A Cisco Cloud Connector is a software component embedded in, hosted on, or integrated with enterprise routing platforms (the Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 [ISR G2] or Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers) to enable or enhance a cloud service. Examples can be improvement of availability, performance, and security of cloud services the connector is embedded in Cisco IOS® Software, hosted on the router, or integrated with it, and it takes advantage of the network services of the platform for a specific cloud service or a group of cloud services.
