Deploying a private cloud requires segmenting and managing a portion of the data center as a central pool of computing resources. The private cloud infrastructure is highly virtualized and, in many respects, similar to more static consolidated virtual server environments.

With a private cloud, however, IT is built differently, IT is run differently, IT is governed differently, IT is sourced differently, and most importantly IT is consumed differently.

The book is based on the study of enterprise IT organizations that have implemented private cloud solutions. Their private cloud projects range from mid-sized deployments to large-scale private clouds that encompass thousands of servers.

Visible Ops Private Cloud includes ITPI’s in-depth analysis of the key competencies these organizations have in common.

  • Phase 1 –Cut through cloud clutter – plan and communicate objectives, manage initial proof of concept efforts, and develop competency road maps.

  • Phase 2– Design services, not systems -- design business optimized cloud services, enable one-touch service ordering, and implement a repeatable approach for build and deploy.

  • Phase 3 – Orchestrate and optimize resources – update monitoring and alerting, deploy a policy engine to codify response, automate resource changes and workload moves.

  • Phase 4 – Align and accelerate business results – complete transition to a resource rental model, reshape consumption behavior, and streamline response to changing business needs.

    By reading this book, you will be able to:

  • Understand the challenges overcome by other IT organizations that have successfully deployed private cloud

  • Understand the key people, process, and technology competencies needed necessary for successful deployment

    Whether you are trying to formulate an initial private cloud strategy or refine your current one, Visible Ops Private Cloud will help you get it right the first time.
