Cisco Intercloud Fabric is a highly secure, open, and flexible solution that gives you complete freedom in workload placement, based on business needs. It applies the same network security, quality of service (QoS), and access control policies in public clouds that you enforce in the data center. And as capacity is added, there is no demarcation between internal and external clouds.
