Practically Speaking About Cloud Computing: IBM CloudBurst

IBM CloudBurst (Pre-Packaged Private Cloud)

IT infrastructure, including computing and network gear, is usually architect in enterprises. This may also include virtualization technologies. This is mostly intended towards meeting business requirements. IT infrastructure Hardware vendors like: IBM, HP, Dell etc… Software vendors like: Microsoft, Oracle, Redhat and Networking vendors like: Cisco, Juniper and so forth have provided the needs that are often left to the enterprises to install, integrate and provision for usage. Contrary to this, recent pre-packaged integrated solutions from vendors deliver complete virtual infrastructure. The idea behind pre-packaged solution is to speed-up the implementation and simplify the management of the systems.

IBM had been one of the leaders in Servers; with their x86 based X Series servers and Power series processors. Starting from this year IBMs CloudBurst v 2.1, a pre-packaged private cloud, will be available to its Power series processors, in addition to x86 based servers. CloudBurst integrates servers with Storage, Networking and System management.

A recent study reveals that most of the IT infrastructure available now in the enterprises needs replacement in the near future. In addition, enterprises are feeling the need to provide IT infrastructure as a service, either to internal users or external users. Provisioning IT infrastructure  in an on demand basis and for external users on  a ‘Pay as You Go’ basis and for internal users on a ‘Charge Back’  basis makes a lot of economical sense. Both of these two factors may force enterprises to look at alternate avenues like cloud services; for those who are vary of plunging in to public clouds, these kind of pre-packaged integrated solutions are good bets.
