Cisco CEO John Chambers Talks Cloud Computing

According to IDG Enterprises’ “CEO Interview Series, ” “We think the ultimate intersection will be a confederation, where it is completely transparent to the end user, the CIO and up, ” said Cisco CEO John Chambers.  “Completely transparent to the end user what combination of physical, virtual, public clouds and private clouds. That is perfect for us, because that’s what networking’s about.”

“The first thing I asked Padmasree [Warrior, CTO] when she came to Cisco was to outline our cloud strategy, ” he said. “She went and got the best engineers, worked with them, came up with the approach. Now we’re driving it with tremendous speed and efficiency, and expanding the partnership with VMware and EMC, who are our best partners. But we’re also getting close to Net App and other players within the industry and getting back to the open standards type of question. We’re off to a real good start here.”
