Building Internal Cloud at NIC : A Preview
The most of computing environments in the IT support organization like NIC are designed to run in centralized data centre. The centralized infrastructure of various development projects are used to deploy their services on it and connecting remotely to that data centre from all the stations of organization. Currently these servers are mostly underutilized due to the static and conventional approaches used for accessing and utilizing of these resources. The cloud patterns are much needful for optimizing resource utilization and reducing the investments on unnecessary costs. So, the authors build up and prototyped a private cloud system called nIC (NIC Internal Cloud) to leverage the benefits of cloud environment. For this system they adopted the combination of various techniques from open source software community.
