The Business Case for Deploying Cisco Metacloud

Version 2

    As the title implies, this "business whitepaper" isn't terribly technical at all. It begins with a brief overview of private cloud computing and the evolution of on-premises private clouds, then compares Cisco Metapod to options from VMware and the OpenStack community, describe Cisco’s unique OpenStack as a Service (OaaS) operating model, and presents Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analyses that compare Metacloud to VMware vCloud Director and an OpenStack Do-It-Yourself (DIY) strategy.
