How to build an internal, private cloud
Once a company decides to take the plunge into cloud territory, it must decide if a private/internal cloud is the way to go and then build a business case to sell it to other decision makers in the organisation. In this e-zine, we report on the benefits of adopting a private cloud model and the trade-offs involved such as management issues. We will also cover self-service provisioning and capacity management in a private cloud; measuring the ROI of the private cloud; choosing a service provider and how to read an SLA (service-level agreement); private cloud best practices; and how to share resources.
