Cisco Metapod™ delivers a public cloud experience, privately. Cisco takes care of what’s “behind the curtain” to allow developers to build and operate amazing apps. Based on OpenStack®, Cisco Metapod™ provides customers with availability zones that are engineered and remotely operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, from Cisco’s secure operations center. With Metapod™, Cisco takes responsibility for running the cloud, allowing IT departments use the real-time hypervisor and dashboard to provide a world-class cloud platform for developers.

“As a preferred partner to Hortonworks, Cloudera, DataStax and Databricks, Cloudwick has more open source big data systems experience than any other service provider,” said Mani Chhabra, founder and CEO of Cloudwick. “With Cisco and its Metapod solution, we are delivering the agility and flexibility of public cloud– privately. This solution will help customers that need the value of the cloud and haven’t yet been able to find a solution to meet their requirements. They’ll derive maximum business value from their data without having to manage the underlying platform themselves.”
