Software is eating infrastructure. By pulling reliability and scalability responsibilities up the stack from hardware into software, object stores such as Basho's Riak CS and cloud orchestration platforms such as Apache CloudStack increase the utilization of compute and storage resources by dynamically shifting workloads based on demand. Together, those platforms can saturate compute and storage of 1000s of hosts with strong operational visibility and end-user self-service.
This talk will cover the following topics to explore private cloud design principles and best practices:
* Why Private Cloud?
* Anatomy of a Private Cloud
* Building a Apache CloudStack Compute Offering
* Large Object Storage using Riak CS
