These speaking engagements come on the heels of the launch of rPath Cloud Engine, new software that helps any private or hybrid cloud software stack ensure consistent, reliable, fast application delivery and update. In addition to end-to-end application management, rPath Cloud Engine plugs and plays into any cloud technology ecosystem, helping tech vendors, hosting providers, and MSPs who partner with rPath to differentiate their products to enterprise customers with bulletproof application delivery.

The first in the industry to realize this differentiation, rPath and Cisco offer the Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud (Cisco IA) software stack seamlessly integrated with the rPath Cloud Engine. This solution, which features a self-service portal, application automation and orchestration, is being used by Cisco to transform the company's private infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud, known as the Cisco IT Elastic Infrastructures (CITEIS) project, into an application cloud.
