Cisco and Amazon partner on hybrid-cloud approach

Cisco Systems Inc. is teaming up with Amazon.com Inc. to offer cloud-computing customers a hybrid-cloud solution that allows them to keep sensitive data and applications off remote servers.

Cisco CSCO, -1.65% and Amazon AMZN, -1.88% announced the partnership Thursday morning, which will combine Cisco’s software and potentially hardware with AWS cloud-computing power. The system will use Kubernetes, open-source containerization software that allows for applications and data to be grouped together and maintained on different sources.

In a telephone interview ahead of the announcement, Cisco’s networking and security chief praised what he called the “world’s first native hybrid Kubernetes environment for AWS.
