Recently, the Enterprise Systems Journal did an extensive interview with VMOps CEO Sheng Liang on the opportunity for enterprise IT departments to leverage cloud platforms to build private clouds.

I wanted to reprint one question, because it is a common question I hear from journalists, analysts and customers alike.

Enterprise Strategies: What are some of the common uses of a private infrastructure cloud?

Sheng Liang: At its core, an infrastructure cloud enables enterprises to manage computing resources more efficiently. Let me give you some examples of how people are using infrastructure clouds today.

* Some companies are leveraging the self-service and automated provisioning features of a private cloud to make it much easier for developers, researchers, IT, and even business units to get access to computing resources. With an infrastructure cloud, a researcher can request and have provisioned a private network with dedicated storage and five VMs in less than 10 minutes.

* Because infrastructure clouds track utilization and allow users to elastically add and destroy resources as needed, companies are using private clouds to easily account for resource consumption at a project or department level, simplify chargeback, and reclaim resources that are no longer in use.

* Infrastructure clouds also are very effective a managing large workloads and scheduling resources so that companies can utilize computing, storage, and networking resources more efficiently.

* Finally, the automation and configuration management built into an infrastructure cloud makes it possible for companies to reduce the need to manually administer their computing infrastructure.
