Intel® Cloud Builders Guide: Cloud Design and Deployment on Intel® Platforms - Unified Networking with Cisco* Virtualized Multi-Tenant Data Center*
Cloud computing offers a path to greater scalability and lower costs for service providers, infrastructure hosting companies, and large enterprises. The establishment of an infrastructure that can provide such capabilities requires experience. Intel has teamed up with leading cloud vendors through the Intel® Cloud Builders program to help any customer design, deploy, and manage a cloud infrastructure.
The Intel Cloud Builders program provides a starting point as it supplies a basic hardware blueprint and available cloud software management solutions such as the Cisco* Virtualized Multi-Tenant Data Center (VMDC). This paper focuses on the design of converged fabrics to meet the needs of the multi-tenant, cloud data center.
