BMC Software announced plans to support Cisco Network Services Manager across its cloud management product line, including BMC Network Automation and BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.

Cisco Network Services Manager, which was announced by Cisco yesterday, will be aggressively supported by BMC across its cloud management product lines. This integration with Cisco’s innovative network management solution will provide simplicity and faster time to value for BMC and Cisco’s joint customers as well as extend support for heterogeneity in cloud environments.

“The introduction of the Cisco Network Services Manager to the market will not only simplify network provisioning, but will also strengthen the ability of partners such as BMC to utilize and deploy the latest Cisco cloud innovations more quickly to our global customer base,” said Nick Adamo, Sr. VP, Global Service Provider for Cisco. “Cisco’s strategic alliance with BMC brings our customers powerful validated and pre-tested cloud solutions.”

BMC has had a history of early integration with Cisco products, including embedded support for the Cisco Unified Computing System platform. By continued integration with Cisco Network Services Manager, BMC will further extend customers’ ability to create different levels of services capability, or “service tiers”, to meet application and deployment requirements.

Since announcing a strategic alliance one year ago, BMC and Cisco have implemented cloud solutions for service providers and large-scale cloud computing infrastructures. These solutions are the foundation of the success of the BMC and Cisco alliance resulting in tightly-aligned product roadmaps, technology architectures and development efforts as well as joint marketing, services, sales, testing and certification activities.

Cisco and BMC’s customers are building the next generation of hybrid and public clouds through innovative networking enhancements and management solutions. More than 25 global scale cloud customers are currently benefiting from the combined strength of both organizations. These customers are numbered among the hundreds of BMC-led cloud initiatives at enterprises and service providers.
