What if you could go for a ride-along with a Cisco Cloud Services rep for a week? Wouldn’t that be the best?! Really—think about it. You’d get to pop in to a bunch of different businesses and hear first-hand what they’re struggling with when it comes to cloud implementation, plus you’d get to hear how the Services team recommends they address those struggles.
It would be a gold mine—first off because you’d be learning which pitfalls are most common (and you’d shrewdly use that info to avoid said pitfalls), but also because you’d then more or less have a blueprint that spelled out how to do cloud right.
Now, to the best of my knowledge Cisco Services is not doing ride-alongs (yet, anyway), but in the absence of that opportunity, we decided to invite a member of that team to the Cloud Unfiltered podcast for a chat. And I’ll tell you—it was quite informative. They really do see what it’s like in the real world of IT, and they have interesting stories to tell. The story-teller in this case was Mr. David Stanford, Senior Manager in the Cloud Product Management Group. A few of the topics he covered with us include:
What type of role Cisco Services plays in the collaborative solutions we’ve announced recently
What a Quick Start is (in the Cisco Services world)
What people are not worried about anymore when it comes to cloud
What the most common obstacles are for customers moving to the cloud
How Amazon & Google’s on-prem Kubernetes strategies compare to the approach Microsoft has taken with Azure Stack
The difference between deploying Kubernetes using Cisco Container Platform and doing it on your own
The three ways customers typically engage Cisco Services
