Abstract: 

Storage in a private cloud is the storage that sits within a particular enterprise security domain and the data is considered more secure. This presentation discusses how we can build your own private cloud storage using off the shelf servers and open source components. This presentation walks through how we can leverage the different open source components that are available, the advantages and suitability of these components in building a private cloud storage solution with respect to (i) Types of Storage [NFS/CIFS/Block Storage] (ii) Backup solutions (iii) Scalability and (iv) Multi-Site Recovery, for building the storage solution within a private cloud. The presentation concludes with how a storage service was built in a private cloud using the open source components.
