Cisco is rolling out a software as a service version of its Tetration data center and cloud analytics platform and one covering virtual appliances.
Tetration is designed to secure, manage, and optimize applications and provide analytics on workloads throughout an enterprise.
The two new consumption models revolve around subscriptions. Tetration SaaS is a cloud-based system for enterprises that aim to go cloud-first.
Tetration-V is a software only version using a virtual appliances for smaller deployments. Tetration-V can run on AWS and Microsoft Azure public clouds.
Yogesh Kaushik, senior director of Tetration product management, said Tetration SaaS will give enterprises flexible payment models without upfront costs. "Large enterprises increasingly have a mandate not to deploy hardware on-premises," he said.
