Everyone talks about cloud and a lot of people are rushing to the public cloud, in part because cloud providers make it so easy to spin up resources and get started.
But you can build a private cloud and have the same benefits–ease of use, self-service, and accountability–within your own data center.
On today’s Datanauts podcast, we break down what it takes to build out a private cloud on your premises.
Our guest is Rita Younger, National Practice Lead SDDC / SDN and Technical Innovation Group at CDW. You can find her on Twitter as @SDN_GIRL.
