Cloud Computing for the Enterprise, Part 3: Using WebSphere CloudBurst to Create Private Clouds
Data center cost is comprised of three main components: hardware, physical costs (such as power and cooling), and administrative management. Among the three, the administrative and management cost component accounts for a significant portion of the overall ongoing cost. As such, removing manual processes, errors, and repetition is a great way to reduce and control IT costs. The new IBM WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance, along with IBM WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition, provides deployment and management functions to deploy WebSphere Application Server environments in a fast and repeatable manner, significantly reducing the administrative and management requirements typically associated with these activities.
