1. Cisco Reveals As-A-Service Strategy: Cisco Plus

Perhaps the biggest piece of news this year so far from the vendor, Cisco made good on its 2020 commitment to delivering the majority of its portfolio “as a service” over time. As such, Cisco ripped the sheet off Cisco Plus in April.

Cisco Plus is the company’s as-a-service strategy that has been in the works with partners for more than a year, which is allowing customers to purchase Cisco IT in a flexible, consumption-based manner. At the April launch, Cisco introduced its first two new flexible consumption models for networking and hybrid cloud.

The Cisco Plus networking-as-a-service (NaaS) model that lets customers and partners operate and maintain their network, without owning, building and maintaining their own infrastructure. Cisco is rolling out a limited release of NaaS solutions year that will bring together networking, security and visibility services across access, WAN and cloud domains, in a pay-as-you-go fashion.

The Cisco Plus Hybrid Cloud solution as-a-service includes Cisco’s entire data center compute, networking and storage portfolio, as well as third-party storage and software, which is bringing together on-premise, edge and public cloud environments in a flexible consumption model.
