In recent years, Cloud has emerged as an important solution for organizations to ease their computing needs and achieve business objectives. Small and Midsized businesses need to do more with less, and that’s what Cloud is all about. It’s on-demand, always available, and requires almost no setup or capital expense. However, there are number of concerns associated with delivering an effective Cloud architecture. For instance, cost, scalability and security are key considerations when delivering cloud services. Cloud service providers who are building Public and Private Clouds need to keep infrastructure cost down in order to price competitively, and have to ensure stellar security and scalability in multitenant environments. Open technologies like OpenStack, Linux and KVM, help deliver on these requirements for Open Clouds, while small and medium customers are looking for choice, low costs and the opportunity to innovate in their businesses.
