What is chef?
Chef is a infrastructure automation provisioning is a framework that makes it easy to deploy servers and application in the cloud, on-premises (physical, virtual) or in a hybrid environment, no matter the size of the infrastructure.
You can use chef to speed up application deployment and even create a continues delivery pipeline.
Amazon Web Services offers a broad set of global cloud-based products including compute, storage, databases, analytics, networking, mobile, developer tools, management tools, IoT, security and enterprise applications. These services help organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale.
Arista Networks was founded to deliver software defined cloud networking solutions for large data center and high-performance computing environments.
Consolidation of what was traditionally three-tier Core/Aggregation/Access designs into two-tier Spine/Leaf designs; fewer tiers decrease cost, complexity, cabling and power/heat.
Private cloud is a computing model that uses resources which are dedicated to your organization/department. A private cloud shares many of the characteristics of public cloud computing including resource pooling, self-service, elasticity.
I will walk you through the steps for configuring the System Center VMM and Create Microsoft private cloud.
Microsoft Private Cloud?
Microsoft private cloud relies on System Center components to create and use Private Clouds. You can use these technologies to offer traditional IaaS services, such as VMs on demand. Also provides support for deploying multi-tier applications, monitoring and updating applications, and automation.
Cloud computing allows self-service access to an elastic pool of IT resources.It’s important to realize that a private cloud isn’t just a technology change; it also requires new attitudes and behaviors. The benefits can be significant.
IaaS PaaS SaaS and CaaS
With the massive increase in “as a Service” we’ve now advanced to XaaS – Everything as a Service. These offerings provide services that are consumed over the internet and they have continued to gain traction. The benefits include greater flexibility with self-service and a low cost of entry since there’s no hardware to purchase or maintain or software licenses. We’ll take a look at three of the most common service models of cloud computing – SaaS, PaaS and IaaS, then take a peek at the the new kid on the block, CaaS.
