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 you 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. It describes next-generation data center architectures such as the virtual access-layer, the unified data center fabric and the 'rack-and-roll' deployment model. It provides an overview of cloud security and cloud management from the server virtualization perspective. It presents real-world case studies, configuration and examples that allow you to easily apply practical know-how to your existing enterprise environment. It offers effective private cloud computing solutions to simplify the costly and problematic challenge of enterprise networking and branch server consolidation.
