The new Cisco Hybrid Solution for Kubernetes on AWS is being billed as the first Kubernetes solution for AWS and a boon for Cisco partners.

The solution announced today and available next month, extends the Cisco Container Platform, an on-premises container stack to spin up Kubernetes workloads on AWS's Elastic Container Service [EKS]. At the solution's core is integration with AWS's identity and access management, which allows identity to be 'inherited' across environments, which is a big part of allowing the two environments to come together, according to David Cope, Cisco senior director of market development.

The solution also opens the door for Cisco customers to run production-grade Kubernetes in on-premises environments by combining Cisco networking management, security and monitoring to between on-premises environments and the AWS public cloud.
