Cloud Computing

Private Cloud Defined

Private clouds presents a shift from a model where everything is customized to one of standardization. Management in such an environment is no longer about avoiding change but instead embracing it to facilitate IT’s twin goals: delivering on the needs of the business and managing the underlying resources in the most efficient way possible.

In the private cloud, management will evolve from preventing and minimizing change to embracing constant change as the natural state of IT. For example, in the physical world moving an application from one server to another means both down-time and risk and needs careful planning and tracking in a Change Management Database (CMDB). By contrast, in a cloud environment change at all levels is embraced and executed automatically based on predefined policies.

The explosive growth of virtualization in the datacenter is creating new opportunities to improve IT utilization for enterprises. At the same time business users are demanding increased exibility in provisioning, accessing, and managing IT systems.

Setting up an on-premise private computing cloud gives end-users the flexibility they demand, while at the same time offering the potential for far greater utilization within the data center

Private clouds offer three key benefits beyond traditional server virtualization.

1. End-user self-administration – With a private cloud, end-users have dedicated user controls that allow them to set-up accounts, import virtual machines, manage virtual machines, monitor utilization and costs, and define network, storage and security settings.

2. Service offering management – IT departments are able to define service offerings centrally, develop and monitor internal controls, and charge departments for utilization.

3. Virtual Datacenter Deployments – Cloud.com extends traditional hypervisor technology to ensure that users can have complete control of their CPU, memory, network, and storage resources without violating the security and resource consumption policies setup by the IT department

Because of these advantages, private computing clouds allow enterprises not only to improve how IT resources are utilized and managed, but also to improve access to IT services for end-users. Cloud.com gives enterprises a simple-to-deploy and easy-to-manage solution for implementing a private computing cloud.
