Thispattern makes it expedient for institutions to configureprivate clouds that allow their users a seamless or nearseamless transition to community or commercial cloudssupporting compatible VM images and cloud interfaces.Such private clouds are characteristically configured withopen source IaaS implementations such as Nimbus orEucalyptus. Nonetheless, such private cloud deployment also faces aexploitation trouble.
