Book Description

Cloud computing is changing the way IT is delivered in enterprises around the world. The world’s leading open source cloud computing platform, Cloudstack, helps you implement a cloud computing service in your enterprise or set up an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offering for your customers.

With "Apache Cloudstack Cloud Computing", learn the leading open source cloud computing platform in an easy step-by-step approach, from understanding the basics of setting up an infrastructure as a service cloud to actual deployment scenarios and extensibility features of CloudStack.

"Apache Cloudstack Cloud Computing" will help you learn how to create, manage, and automate the provisioning, decommissioning, and other tasks of your IT infrastructure resources and manage your data centre(s). Add IT infrastructure resources like storage, network resources, and hosts to CloudStack to manage the entire data centre and logically segregate the resources to help better manage and provide policy-based user access to the cloud.

Then the book will show you how to deploy the CloudStack environment in a highly available fashion and deploy your own IT resources, such as VMs, in a highly available scenario to prevent downtime and non-interrupted service.
