Cloud computing describes a new supplement, consumption, and delivery model for IT services based on Internet protocols, and it typically involves provisioning of dynamically scalable and often virtualised resources. It is a byproduct and consequence of the ease-of-access to remote computing sites provided by the Internet. This may take the form of web-based tools or applications that users can access and use through a web browser as if the programs were installed locally on their own computers.
Cloud computing providers deliver applications via the internet, which are accessed from web browsers and desktop and mobile apps, while the business software and data are stored on servers at a remote location. In some cases, legacy applications (line of business applications that until now have been prevalent in thin client Windows computing) are delivered via a screen-sharing technology, while the computing resources are consolidated at a remote data center location; in other cases, entire business applications have been coded using web-based technologies such as AJAX.
At the foundation of cloud computing is the broader concept of infrastructure convergence (or Converged Infrastructure) and shared services. This type of data center environment allows enterprises to get their applications up and running faster, with easier manageability and less maintenance, and enables IT to more rapidly adjust IT resources (such as servers, storage, and networking) to meet fluctuating and unpredictable business demand.

Whether you build your own private cloud or opt for either a pre-configured or hosted solution, the private cloud gives you the flexibility and control to set your own course. Pool computing resources, automate management, and improve scalability, provisioning, and agility.
VMware as SaaS and PaaS infrastructure
IT infrastructures have become too complex and brittle for the pace and dynamism of business today. 70% of current IT investment remains focused on maintenance, leaving little resources for innovation. With users clamoring for faster response times and management demanding lower costs, IT needs a better strategy. Cloud computing offers a new model that cuts through IT complexity by leveraging the efficient pooling of on-demand, self-managed virtual infrastructure, consumed as a service.
Server and Storage as Cloud Computing Infrastructure is the Keys of Virtualization, BHT cooperate with some Principal to Implement Cloud Computing and support directly from Indonesia Representative Office based on Project, including HP, DELL, IBM, FUJITSU & Oracle SUN.
The Juniper Networks QFabric family of products offers a revolutionary approach that delivers quantum leap improvements in data center performance, operating costs, and business agility for enterprises, high-performance computing systems, and large-scale cloud providers. The QFabric family implements a single-tier network in the data center, enabling exponential improvements in speed, scale and efficiency by removing legacy barriers and improving business agility. The QFabric family includes two members:
- QFabric System: Composed of three separate components—the QFabric Node, QFabric Interconnect and QFabric Director—the QFabric System creates a high-performance, ultra-low latency fabric that unleashes the full power of the data center with the simplicity of a single switch.
- QFabric Node acts as the entry and exit into the fabric
- QFabric Interconnect is the high-speed transport device for interconnecting QFabric Nodes
- QFabric Director provides control and management services to deliver a common window for managing all devices as a single device.
- QFX3500 Switch: The QFX3500 is a standalone 48-port 10GbE top-of-rack switch with four 40GbE uplink ports and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and FC gateway functionality. With a simple software and configuration change, the QFX3500 can also provide the QFabric Node functionality in a QFabric System.
Performance The QFabric architecture can scale up to 40 Tbps, providing unprecedented capacity for moving beyond 10GbE at the access layer. In addition, QFabric’s ultra-low deterministic latency provides an order of magnitude improvement over traditional network architectures, making it ideal for supporting latency-sensitive applications, east-west traffic flows, virtualization, cloud computing, and other high-performance data center initiatives.
Management Presenting itself as a single switch running the Junos operating system, the QFabric architecture greatly simplifies data center management. Fewer switches in the data center translates into significantly less complexity and operational expense, as well as lower power, space, and cooling costs. As a reliable carrier-class solution with no single point of failure and requiring no downtime for reconfiguration and maintenance, the QFabric architecture also maximizes network availability.
Scale The QFabric architecture supports a highly efficient “pay-as-you-grow” model that can scale from a few hundred ports to 6,000 ports within a single-tier network. QFX3500 Switches can be introduced into data centers incrementally as top-of-rack devices, interoperating with the current switch infrastructure.
Over time, the QFX3500s can be converted to a QFabric Node edge device through a simple software configuration change, allowing customers to transition to a QFabric solution without requiring a wholesale replacement of the existing network.
The QFabric architecture is environmentally conscious, allowing enterprises to optimize every facet of the data center network while consuming less power, requiring less cooling, and producing a fraction of the carbon footprint of legacy multi-tiered data center networks.
QFabric complies with the following standards:
- Reduction of Hazardous Substances (ROHS)
- Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)
- Waste Electronics and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) responsible solution.
When it comes to security and compliance, private cloud computing trumps the public cloud. According to a 2011 study by the Aberdeen Group, the private cloud saves a total of 12% combined annual cost savings over public clouds on a per-application basis. When it comes to computing costs, everything adds up fast – including personnel and training, process and technology, hardware, software, services and support.
Companies that implemented private clouds also incurred 38 percent fewer costs related to security and compliance events in the past year compared to public cloud users. Public cloud users suffered from an overall 25 percent of incidents related to audit deficiencies, data loss or data exposure, and unauthorized access.
Compliance in the Cloud
However, national industry compliance standards, such as PCI or HIPAA compliance remain concerns of mid and large-sized companies. While many industries are hesitant to adopt the cloud due to security concerns, the private cloud offers a cost-effective, streamlined and secure option. The healthcare industry in particular has been known as late-adopters of new technology, but the latest incentives for implementing an electronic health records (EHR) system have trended toward demands for a secure, reliable and compliant data hosting solution. With HIPAA violations costing healthcare providers up to $1.5 million in penalties each year, the healthcare industry can’t afford to skim over HIPAA compliance when they start the transition to electronic file-keeping (American Medical Association).
The report contends that current investments in cloud computing include the more well-known drivers, including saving on physical IT costs, disaster recovery planning, faster deployment times and high level of application availability. While these investments drive many to the cloud in general, one specific driver leading companies to the private cloud include industry pressures of risk and compliance, including dealing with sensitive information (cardholder data (CHD) and protected health information (PHI)). With industry regulations come questions of how to backup, store, transmit and recover critical data collected from customers or patients.
Another driver is the demand for access anywhere, meaning more and more people with the need to access business files and data from remote locations. It’s also not uncommon for companies to deal with external and internal users – external users may include customers or business partners, while internal users are regular or temporary employees or contractors.
With overall total cost savings and less compliance and security-related incidents, the private cloud is an ideal choice for companies that require industry-regulated secure hosting solutions to protect sensitive information.
