When planning cloud computing deployments, enterprise architects and network planners need to be able to identify the expectations for control and management based on the type of cloud and its level categorization. Categorization such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) will be the topic of Chapter 3, “Service Models.”
This chapter covers the models for cloud computing deployment, which relate to strategies for extending virtualization outside of the data center into the cloud.
- Evolving from virtualization to the cloud
- Planning organization roles in the cloud
- Identifying cloud deployment models and scope modifiers
- Including future cloud models
