Build a domestic cloud

Many companies are experimenting to develop private cloud computing in order to provide a more flexible approach on the application demand and for development environment. The talk explains how to implement these infrastructures with Eucalyptus and openQRM in production.

Cloud computing can dynamically provision servers and increase capacity automatically to meet application demand. What most IT organizations really want to do, is to have capabilities associated with cloud computing running inside their organizations. For security and control reason, most IT people are more comfortable relying on themselves for mission-critical applications. For this reason the talk explain the experience of internal setup of cloud computing and the different approach between Eucalyptus and openQRM the most important and mature project nowadays. We explore the most common problems like deployment, performance, scalability and hardware requirement for a better implementation.
