Managing your company with Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud

If you have a plan to start an IT company in the future, and thinking about the infrastructure and design of company,  then these tips will going to help you in managing the equipments and systems in the cloud:

Public and Private cloud:
Despite the appeal and promise of cloud computing, your company might want to keep some applications in your house, especially when the business-critical need is high (e.g business intelligence data) or when sensitivity of data is an issue. For this you need to set up a private cloud data centre that supports virtulized load cost effectively and efficiently. The cloud infrastructure is 'right-sized' and must have ability to dynamically scale modular applications and workloads.

Hybrid Cloud:
Another option is the hybrid cloud, a model where you use both private and public clouds. For e.g, your cloud outsource any data centre overload to a public cloud during seasonal spikes in business needs. In this case, you would built your private cloud to your average operation requirements, and then turn to public cloud when you needed it instead of over-sizing your data centre and running it at half load.

Practices for small IT developments within small server rooms and branch offices:

Power: Reliability increases if each UPS is plugged into a separate circuit where each unit is fed from its own circuit breaker.

Cooling: The recommended temp. for IT equipment is between 64.4 F and 80.6 F.

Racks: A rack is a fundamental structure for the IT gear, and increase availability, organization, security, cooling effectiveness, ease of power distribution, and professionalism.

Lightening: IT equipment frequently ends up with poor lightening. A low cost headlamp, hung from a hook in the back of the closed IT cabinet, is a cheap and effective way to ensure proper visibility.
