HashiCorp announced it has entered into a multi-year agreement with Cisco, in which Cisco will sell HashiCorp Terraform Cloud Business alongside the Cisco Intersight platform. The agreement will help customers achieve a hybrid cloud operating model using Terraform’s infrastructure as code for infrastructure provisioning and management of private data centres with Cisco Intersight.
“HashiCorp is delighted to expand our commercial agreement with Cisco, a critical provider of computing infrastructure, networking, and security solutions in private data centres. Together, we are working to help solve the challenges that large organizations face when running both public cloud and private data centre environments,” said Brandon Sweeney, chief revenue officer at HashiCorp. “Through this agreement, we are excited to deliver proven solutions to accelerate the delivery of a cloud operating model for our joint customers.”
Organisations adopt Terraform infrastructure as code because they are challenged by inconsistent, error-prone provisioning practices across multiple environments. Offered as a service, Terraform Cloud allows teams and organisations to provision multi-cloud infrastructure, and manage risks for security, compliance, and operational constraints. Organisations are looking to extend these capabilities to their private environments as well.
“HashiCorp Terraform enables Riot’s Esports team to simplify management of our infrastructure by enabling the reliable deployment of changes across our global footprint,” said Scott Adametz, senior manager, infrastructure engineering at Riot Games. “Working in concert with continuous innovation/continuous delivery pipelines, the Cisco Intersight cloud operations platform is enabling us to provision networking and compute infrastructure across multiple environments with the simplicity of a git merge. With Cisco Intersight Service for HashiCorp Terraform, we will have the opportunity to simplify and secure our operations further to ensure consistent infrastructure automation and improve DevOps agility.”
