  1. Requesting information on Cloud computing and Cisco solutions/suggestions. Cloud Computing: Automating the Virtual Data Center

    • Hi Neil, Would be glad to offer some guidance. This is great timing as we just announced Cisco CloudVerse, which is a suite of solutions or building blocks to enable companies to build and manage private, public and hybrid clouds: Hopefully this will point you in the right direction below: Overview • Overview on how IT can become IT as a Service with cloud. This will cover: 1. The data center component that includes not only compute and storage, but network intelligence, security and management solutions that allow businesses to transition from physical to virtual to cloud environments - a Unified Data Center. 2. The ability to offer self-service provisioning, automation and service orchestration as well as an IT service catalog. There is also governance, lifecycle management and pay-per-use capabilities. We call this Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud. 3. Network intelligence that extends beyond an individual data center to enable service integration across data centers. The key is to do this while still maintaining security and separation, whether physically or logically. We call this Cloud Intelligent Network 4. All of the above allows us to offer a portfolio of cloud applications and services, oftentimes with a partner or service provider such as yourself! • You can also go to the CloudVerse homepage for more resources: Technical Guide • I think the best place to start may be with our design guide home page for cloud: Specifically… o Multi-tenancy in virtual environments - o Security in multi-tenant environments - o How to migrate to IT as a Service - Thought Leadership • What business leaders should know regarding use cases for cloud: Please don’t hesitate to contact me with additional questions.
