The first output out of the Intel Cloud Builder Program:
For Cloud Service Providers, Hosters and Enterprise IT who are looking to build their own
cloud infrastructure, the decision to use a cloud for the delivery of IT services is best done
by starting with the knowledge and experience gained from previous work. This white
paper gathers into one place a complete example of running a Canonical Ubuntu Enterprise
Cloud on Intel®-based servers and is complete with detailed scripts and screen shots. Using
the contents in this paper should significantly reduce the learning curve for building and
operating your first cloud computing instance.
Since the creation and operation of a cloud requires integration and customization to
existing IT infrastructure and business requirements, it is not expected that this paper
can be used as-is. For example, adapting to existing network and identify management
requirements are out of scope for this paper. Therefore, it is expected that the user of
this paper will make significant adjustments to the design to meet specific customer
requirements. This paper is assumed to be a starting point for that journey.
