Traditionally, the provisioning process for new application environments and infrastructure resources contains numerous planning, technical, communication, and testing steps that can sometimes span over multiple weeks or even months.
Condensing this long, error-prone and often painful process to 15 minutes is the promise of the private cloud. But how can you leverage server, network, storage, automation, and orchestration resources that are already in place in your own datacenter to create a private cloud?
