Fit to Burst: A Practitioner's Guide to Cloudbursting
sponsored by Rackspace

The amount of automation provided by the cloud has radically reduced server configuration time, but it still isn’t instantaneous. This is especially true when looking at ‘cloudbusting,’ the rapid deployment of compute in the cloud when spikes in demand might overload an existing data center. 

However, planning cloudbursting around foreseen peaks in traffic can be an excellent way to ensure peak capacity, while avoiding the costs of overprovisioning. 

This comprehensive whitepaper presents a point-by-point guide to cloudbursting from the selection of a cloud vendor, to a best-practice progression of server use, and a look at pre-scripted commands for automation.
