A leading provider of networking solutions, Cisco IT faces many of the same IT challenges that organizations face every day. It also benefits from deploying products and technologies from Cisco, the leading provider of global network infrastructure. Cisco IT sought to create a modern on-premise Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment where 1,000+ of its developers could easily design and build applications. Using Red Hat® OpenShift as a foundation, Cisco IT created the Lightweight Application Environment (LAE), which runs on top of Cisco’s internal private cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The LAE platform helps speed time to capability, increase operational efficiency, cut hardware costs, and improve security and development agility—all while supporting a continuous delivery environment.
Using Red Hat OpenShift, we’ve created an end-to-end solution that supports the entire development life cycle.Michael White, I.T. Architect, Cisco
