Cloud computing offers a path to greater scalability and lower costs for service providers, infrastructure hosting companies, and large enterprises. Establishing an infrastructure that can provide such capabilities requires experience. Intel has teamed up with leading cloud vendors through the Intel Cloud Builder program to help any customer design, deploy, and manage a cloud infrastructure. The Intel Cloud Builder program provides a starting point by supplying a basic hardware blueprint and available cloud software management solutions such as the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform Service Provider Edition. The use cases described in this paper can be used as a baseline to build more complex usage and deployment models to suit specific customer needs.
