Private Distributed Cloud Deployment in a Limited Networking Environment
The focus of the authors' research began with the deployment of a cloud computing system to offer resources similar to commercial vendors. Realizing the implications of deploying such a system in an environment with limited networking resources (IP addresses); they decided to find a solution that would work giving their cloud only one public IP address. Users will be able to access cloud resources through a simple web interface and maintenance of the cloud will be contained with private networking resources. Users needing resources in the local cloud will rely on a NAT router, with other functionalities, to gain access these resources.
