Private Cloud Computing: Consolidation, Virtualization, and Service-Oriented Infrastructureby Stephen R. Smoot
Synopses & Reviews
For years, IT leaders have been searching high and low for an IT service delivery model that can be leveraged on a single unified network. Private cloud computing is the solution to enable this model because it can consolidate diverse networks into a single virtual entity. As such, IT resources can be scaled up and down virtually to provision on-demand services without addition of new physical devices or entities. This creates huge cost savings and increases the ability to react and adjust to rapidly changing business climates. But how is this done?
Private Cloud Computing you how. By looking at building a Service-Oriented Infrastructure for cloud computing services it investigates how data center consolidation techniques, WAN optimization and virtualization enable new structures with increased productivity. The book also focuses on how WAN optimization can transorm the weakest component--the WAN--in a modern day center setup into the strongest together with virtualization as the responsive and dynamic IT service delivery model.
Book News Annotation:
This detailed volume on the planning and implementation of enterprise cloud computing infrastructures examines problems and solutions in wide area network (WAN) optimization, modern data center technologies, and server virtualization for private cloud computing systems. Topics discussed include next generation WAN and service integration, session interception design and deployment, WAN optimization, IP storage, and cloud infrastructure as a service. Chapters include detailed schematics, code examples and illustrations, and a glossary of acronyms and terms is provided. The volume is for experienced IT and network professionals and examples are based around Cisco networking products and VMware virtualization software. Smoot and Tan are engineers for Riverbed, a Wan optimizations technology firm. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Private cloud computing enables you to consolidate diverse enterprise systems into one that is cloud-based and can be accessed by end-users seamlessly, regardless of their location or changes in overall demand. Expert authors Steve Smoot and Nam K. Tan distill their years of networking experience to describe how to build enterprise networks to create a private cloud. With their techniques you'll create cost-saving designs and increase the flexibility of your enterprise, while maintaining the security and control of an internal network. Private Cloud Computing offers a complete cloud architecture for enterprise networking by synthesizing WAN optimization, next-generation data centers, and virtualization in a network-friendly way, tying them together into a complete solution that can be progressively migrated to as time and resources permit.
