Self-Service Provisioning and the Private Cloud

Use Microsoft and Dell Compellent Virtualization to Improve Delivery of Infrastructure as a Service

Virtualization and the emergence of private cloud computing provide today’s organizations with powerful new ways to provide business groups with the computing and infrastructure resources they need—more quickly and cost-effectively than ever before. For many business groups, virtual machines (VMs) can provide precisely the resources they require without those groups having to jump through the hoops associated with gaining access to the same resources delivered through a physical infrastructure. Both the IT team and the business organization benefit from the absence of physical infrastructure, the elimination of long approval and purchasing cycles, and the speed with which virtual resources can be brought online and into service for the business group.

Yet managing these virtual resources presents new challenges for today’s IT departments. The IT organization must manage incoming requests for services. VMs must be properly provisioned and managed, and meeting these challenges efficiently and cost-effectively requires new tools and new approaches.

Dell Compellent and Microsoft have developed a set of tools that can simplify and streamline the task of provisioning and managing the virtualized resources supporting a private cloud environment. These tools can help you respond more rapidly to your organization’s needs through the deployment of a powerful self-service portal, even as they enable you to manage and deliver services more efficiently and cost-effectively.

This white paper outlines an approach to creating a private cloud computing environment that enables an organization to meet the needs of diverse constituents quickly and with high efficiency. At the heart of this approach lies an optimized self-service provisioning portal based on Microsoft virtualization technologies and the Dell™ Compellent® Storage Center SAN™ solution
