BUILDING AND MAINTAINING EFFECTIVE CLOUD COMPUTING INFRASTRUCTURES
A number of technical issues, including WAN performance, security, and central management of virtual and IP services, prevent the widespread adoption of cloud computing infrastructures in the enterprise. This paper explores the nature of these technical challenges and offers solutions for building and maintaining more effective cloud computing infrastructures. Cloud computing holds great promise as the next leap in efficiency for enterprise computing. Primarily enabled by server, storage, and network virtualization, cloud computing allows businesses to dynamically allocate and assign computing resources from across the company’s assets to where the resources are most needed. This practice promises to cut hardware and software acquisition costs significantly and can have a tremendous savings in energy expenditures as well. DOWNLOAD
