CliQr Achieves Cisco Compatibility Certification With the Cisco Solution Partner Program
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Feb. 9, 2016 – CliQr, the leading enterprise cloud management platform provider, announces that its CloudCenter solution has successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). Software-defined networking (SDN) is redefining data center management to deliver unprecedented levels of speed, efficiency and security. As a member of the Cisco Solution Partner Program, CliQr can quickly create and deploy solutions that enhance Cisco ACI capabilities, performance and management so customers can realize the value of SDN.
CliQr CloudCenter facilitates the profiling of both newly developed or existing applications leading to the ability to automate deployment and management of the full application stack, the underlying infrastructure and the ACI policy objects – all from a single management platform. Based on application requirements, CloudCenter creates, instantiates and destroys policy objects through the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) application program interfaces without scripting or any user intervention. Customers benefit from self-service deployment of existing or new multi-tier applications that can include micro-segmented network security with tiers deployed in single-site or multi-site stretched-fabric topologies. This level of programmatic network configuration is a stark contrast to legacy-generation manual processes, and it enables accelerated application deployment that maximizes security and IT efficiency.
“CliQr’s application-centric management platform is uniquely suited to work with Cisco ACI, and we are pleased to achieve the ‘Cisco Compatible’ designation that indicates the ease of integration and level of service we can provide to customers,” says Gaurav Manglik, co-founder and CEO at CliQr. “Application-centric management coupled with application-centric infrastructure delivers to customers the full power and promise of software defined networking.”
The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers. As a Solution Partner, CliQr offers a complementary product offering and has started to collaborate with Cisco to meet the needs of joint customers.
