The skills required for information technology are changing rapidly with the availability of newer software defined networking solutions. The virtualization of application and network devices is causing an overlap of management domains for network engineers, systems engineers and security engineers. The network devices and applications now reside at network servers as virtual machines (VM). In addition there is a shift toward an internet-based connectivity model that is changing how the network is managed. New virtualized management solutions have been developed for integrating physical and virtual platforms. Each group must develop new skills for virtualization, server-based troubleshooting and cloud management. Virtualization of applications and devices allow for an on-demand connectivity and operational model. It is characterized by a dynamic, elastic, scalable architecture that is hardware independent. The new networking paradigm uses Openstack, vPath and SDN programmable network devices. The virtualization overlay abstracts the underlying network infrastructure from the application layer. The virtualization architecture is enabling seamless access and global connectivity of enterprise and cloud data center applications. Cloud Design Fundamentals provides coverage of all cloud topics from hosting architectures to virtual appliances and practical examples of cloud deployment. The key skills required for implementing virtual appliances are explained and how they are used to create dynamic virtual data centers. There is extensive coverage of SaaS, VPS and Amazon AWS hybrid cloud models including enterprise connectivity and newer cloud-based security solutions. The book provides the new virtualization skills required at work for designing, managing and troubleshooting the cloud.
