Cloud Computing

This booklet contains the story behind the setup of my own private cloud. The project is made in my free-time to play around with common cloud topics. As it is a playground I would be glad to get constructive feedback, including hints, tips and tricks. I do belive that the given information might help people to increase their understanding of cloud computing or engage students to do a survey with cloud technology by themselfes.

The cloud should consists of the following layers, which are also visible in the outline of this booklet:

  1. Metal-as-a-Service (Ubuntu MAAS)
  2. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Open Stack)
  3. Platform-as-a-Service (Cloud Foundry)


The outline can be found at the bottom of each page. You can also navigate through the sections of this booklet via the controls at the bottom.
