Cloud Definitions• Private cloud. The cloud infrastructure is operated solely for an organization. It may be managed by the organization or a third party and may exist on premise or off premise.• Public cloud. The cloud infrastructure is made available to the general public or a large industry group and is owned by an organization selling cloud services.• Hybrid cloud. The cloud infrastructure is a composition of two or more clouds (private, community, or public) that remain unique entities but are bound together by standardized or proprietary technology that enables data and application portability (e.g., cloud bursting for load- balancing between clouds).

Build Your Own Private Cloud• Your private cloud will deliver many of the benefits of public cloud computing – Self-service – Scalability – Elasticity – Resource Pooling
Build Your Own Private Cloud• The Hyper-V Cloud Deployment Guides are a collection of best practices based on a Microsoft Consulting Services framework. They are designed to help you deploy a private cloud solution using Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, and the Virtual Machine Manager Self-Service Portal 2.0.http://www.microsoft.com/virtualization/en/us/private-cloud-get-started.aspx
System Center Virtual Machine Manager• SCVMM Server• SCVMM Administration Console• SCVMM Self Service Portal• SCVMM Agent• SCVMM Library Server
SCVMM Server• Runs SCVMM Service• Connects to a SQL Database• Is the Default Library Server
SCVMM Administration Console• Create, deploy, and manage virtual machines and templates• Monitor and manage hosts (Windows Server® 2008/ Windows Server® 2008R2 Hyper-V™, Microsoft® Virtual Server 2005 and VMware® Virtual Center managed ESX servers) and library servers• Manage library objects and jobs• Manage global configuration settings
Security Considerations• Understanding and planning the default and custom user roles that are defined in the self-service portal.• Planning and preparing the service accounts.• Understanding the ports and protocols required for establishing communication channels between various self-service portal components.• Hardening the Web server that will run the VMMSSP website component.•
Security Considerations• Accounts and Groups• Service Accounts• Firewall Exceptions
Hardening The SSP Website• Configuring SSL for the Self-Service Portal• Disabling ISAPI Handlers That Are not Needed
How To Disable ISAPI Filters1. On the Web server, in Administrative Tools, open InternetInformation Services (IIS) Manager.2. Expand Sites, and navigate to the IIS website configuredfor the self-service portal.3. In the Features View pane, under IIS, open HandlerMappings.4. For each handler that is not listed in the preceding table,select the handler, click Remove, and then click Yes.
Host Groups• Set aside resources on the hosts for the use of the host operating system.• Designate hosts that are used for self-service.• Designate which hosts are connected to a storage area network (SAN). (This is a best practice.)• Enable the automatic placement of virtual machines on the best host in a group of hosts.
SCVMM Server PlacementOne is enough except…• When the development and test environments are managed separately from the production virtual environment• When the virtual environments grows—or is planned to grow—beyond the supported maximum of 400 hosts and 8,000 virtual machines
Monitoring and Reporting• Provided through the Server Virtualization Management Pack for System Center Operations Manager 2007.• Before reports can be viewed and used, Operations Manager must be installed and the Server Virtualization Management Pack deployed.
