From virtualization to private cloud: Making the move

Moving from virtualization to private cloud can be rewarding, but also challenging. The authors of a new book on private cloud discuss the obstacles and share their advice.

Moving from virtualization to private cloud computing can help your data center run more efficiently and effectively. But getting there isn’t easy.

The private cloud model includes pooled resources, available on demand, that are dynamically allocated and managed. Naturally, modifying a virtual infrastructure to support this model is a complicated endeavor. And getting buy-in from different stakeholders, both within IT and beyond, isn’t always easy, either.

This edition of This Week in Virtualization features Andi Mann, vice president of product marketing for CA Technologies, and Kurt Milne, managing director of the IT Process Institute. They are two of the authors of a new book, Visible Ops Private Cloud: From Virtualization to Private Cloud in Four Practical Steps. In this interview, they share their definitions of private cloud, the pros and cons of the model and their most important advice for transforming your data center.

This podcast also features news on the latest Cisco Unified Computing System release.
