Can someone please help me in determining what I should do with my applications so that they can run in a private or public cloud? Kindly differentiate private cloud, public cloud and virtualized data center and what are the pros and cons of each?Thanks.
How to make Apps run in Cloud Networks
You should be familiar with virtualized data center or Server virtualization which is basically a set up to decouple the applications from their physical servers using an abstraction layer called ‘Hypervisor’ that enables Multiple Applications plus operating system to reside within a single server. Server Virtualization allow dynamic provisioning of resources based on their demand and also allow Virtual Machines to migrate between one Server to another occupy multiple servers, as required.A private cloud is a software infrastructure that enables end-users to acquire, configure and ultimately release data center resources on-demand, using automated self-service tools and software services within an enterprise’s data center. A public cloud is one based on the standard cloud computing model, in which a service provider makes resources, such as applications and storage, available to the general public over the Internet. Public cloud services may be free or offered on a pay-per-usage model.
