Cisco and Google announced a partnership Wednesday aimed at helping the pair better compete in the cloud computing space.

Apps will be able to run both at customers' own premises as well as in the cloud. The companies said a limited number of customers will be able to try out the joint effort in the first part of next year, with broader availability later in 2018.

Why it matters: The move could help both companies in their competitive battles with Microsoft's Azure and Amazon's AWS.
