The Foundation for Private Cloud Infrastructure
December 7th, 2012 By: Bill Kleyman
Cloud technologies have come a long way. Now, we have public, hybrid, community, and of course private cloud platforms. In designing a cloud environment, many organizations strive to align their business needs and goals with those of the IT platform. This is where a private cloud infrastructure can really help out.
In creating a private cloud, there are a lot of moving parts to consider. For example administrators have to think about networking, storage, server hardware, applications and of course – the user. The challenge became to simplify the private cloud deployment model and ensure that there is a clear ROI in such a project. From this challenge, Cisco created the Unified Data Center for Private Cloud. Engineers and managers are able to utilize a platform which contains almost all of the necessary components to create a powerful private cloud platform.
This white paper outlines how the Cisco Unified Data Center makes the private cloud creation process easier, more scalable and faster to deploy. In working with the Cisco platform, engineers are able to leverage some powerful features to get the job done.
• Unified Fabric – Better Networks
• Unified Computing – Faster Computing Power
• Unified Management – Easier Infrastructure and Cloud Management
Cloud technologies will continue to evolve. As more organizations move to a private cloud model, they’ll be trying to simplify the process while still making their cloud environment agile. Download this white paper today to see how the Cisco Unified Data Center platform helps enterprises move toward a more powerful private cloud computing model. How can this type of model help your organization?

Remember, working with a private cloud model can sometimes be challenging. To take the guessing game out of the cloud, engineers need to deploy intelligent systems which are capable of growth and expansion.
