Enterprises, small businesses and governments are looking to cloud-based solutions to solve some of their biggest business and technology challenges: reducing costs, reaching new levels of efficiency, and creating innovative business models. However, cloud services place new demands and requirements on the enterprise network. The way applications are delivered and consumed has been fundamentally changed by the cloud and will continue to change drastically.
Although these solutions may be adequate as temporary measures, Cisco believes that the true solution lies in making the network infrastructure 'cloud intelligent'. With this type of solution, the enterprise network can truly optimize cloud application performance within the available bandwidth to deliver a high-quality user experience, especially for the high-demand applications of today and tomorrow.
