Cloud Computing for the Enterprise-- Part 3: Using WebSphere CloudBurst to Create Private Clouds
Data center cost is comprised of three main components: hardware, physical costs (such as power and cooling), and administrative management. Among the three, the administrative and management cost component accounts for a significant portion of the overall ongoing cost. As such, removing manual processes, errors, and repetition is a great way to reduce and control IT costs. By leveraging virtualization and cloud computing principles, WebSphere CloudBurst provides the capability to efficiently use a shared resource pool -- a private cloud -- to reduce infrastructure costs.
