Cisco and Microsoft have teamed up on a series of new datacenter ventures designed to simplify cloud deployments.

Based on Microsoft's Cloud OS, the suite of solutions rely on the combination of Cisco's Unified Data Center architecture with Microsoft's Fast Track architecture for private clouds.

The tech giants tout that the merger of these architectures should streamline the management of combined Cisco and Microsoft data center environments while improving agility to provision resources.

Microsoft customers, in particular, will also gain access to Cisco's Unified Computing System of servers, which combine networking, virtualization, and storage access into a single architecture.

One example is the Cisco PowerTool for Microsoft's PowerShell utility, which is touted to enable IT departments to provision, configure, and monitor physical and virtual infrastructures and Windows Server and application software at every level.

Cisco and Microsoft will also be jointly delivering new go-to-market initiatives to channel partners who resell both Cisco datacenter and Microsoft Cloud OS products.
