Intel® Cloud Builders Guide: Cloud Design and Deployment on TAROX ParX* Server SeriesAudience and PurposeThis reference architecture guide seeks to simplify the deployment and operation of a cloud. This guide describes a cloud with VMware vCloud Director*, the TAROX Systems & Services GmbH with ParX* R2080i and ParX* 1080i powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor, and the details for this particular cloud configuration.The content is targeted to IT professionals responsible for the design, implementation, validation, and utilization of cloud structures. Details for the hardware configuration, software configuration, and results from specific test cases implemented that demonstrate basic operational capabilities are described in this guide.This guide should complement product documentation and is provided as a starting point for the actual development of an enterprise or service provider cloud.Executive SummaryTo break the trend of ever-increasing demand for compute resources and the resultant rise in operational costs, a new model for IT services has emerged–cloud computing. Cloud computing is an approach to computing that utilizes the efficient pooling of an on-demand, self-managed virtual infrastructure, consumed as a service. This approach abstracts applications and information from the complexity of underlying infrastructure, so IT can support and enable business value. Cloud computing architectures are built on the foundation of virtualization, and as the customer-proven leader in virtualization, VMware helps to chart the course to cloud computing. VMware works in concert with Intel and other industry leaders to help businesses of all sizes migrate to secure cloud computing in order to establish a new era in IT that finally addresses the compounded problems of IT cost and complexity. VMware’s proven technology is a logical starting point to develop cloud reference architectures.Read the full Cloud Design and Deployment on TAROX ParX* Server Series Reference Architecture.
