Flip to Cloud

Cloud computing creates new challenges for IT Pros, offering powerful new capabilities that can cut costs while delivering new value.

Using Hyper-V, System Center Virtual Machine Manager and Operations Manager, organizations can bring the "cloud" architecture agility to their own datacenters. This is commonly referred to as a "private cloud".

Private Cloud concept brings together the mindset of resiliency over redundancy, predictability through homogenization and standardization, resource (compute, network and storage) pooling, virtualization, fabric management, elasticity, partitioning of shared resources, and cost transparency.

Below you will find how to translate these concepts into the reality of your datacenter.
