Cisco, BMC forge cloud infrastructure partnership

The two are widening their alliance in effort to allow for the automation and linking of various cloud-computing components.

Cisco and BMC Software said today they are expanding their partnership to enable telecommunications companies to offer multi-tenant cloud-computing services.

Under the terms of the alliance, BMC and Cisco will sync product development road maps and architecture to deliver a suite to automate cloud-computing delivery. The platform, dubbed the Cloud Delivery Platform, is designed for service providers at first, but will expand to enterprises that have large private cloud operations.

The joint effort will allow for the automation and linking of various cloud-computing components so telecom giants can provision services quickly.

BMC and Cisco already have a strong partnership via the Unified Computing System (UCS) initiative. In a nutshell, Cisco sells servers and BMC's software can ride shotgun.
