Questions About Intercloud
If you're a Cisco Systems channel partner confused about where the networking giant's Intercloud strategy stands, you're not alone. Nick Earle, senior vice president of Global Cloud and Managed Services Sales, brings some clarity around the San Jose, Calif.-based company's plan for a global network of connected public and private clouds in an exclusive interview with CRN.
For more than two years, Earle has been on the front lines of Cisco's "cloud of clouds" strategy, which has recently come under fire as some channel partners say Intercloud isn't taking hold in the market. Earle says Intercloud is undergoing a transformation and expects its new leader, CTO Zorawar Biri Singh, to push forward Cisco's strategy.
In the interview, Earle details the specifics around Intercloud, the opportunities around applications, and new Intercloud solutions available to the channel.
