On-premises private cloud solutions allow IT organizations to retain control of company data and technology spending by empowering them to deliver new services as quickly and easily as external cloud providers.  Beginning with a brief overview of private cloud computing and the evolution of on-premises private clouds, this white paper compares Cisco Metapod to options from VMware and the OpenStack community.  In this publication you will find a description of Cisco’s unique OpenStack as a Service (OaaS) operating model, and present Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analytics that compare Cisco Metapod to VMware vCloud Director and an OpenStack Do-It-Yourself (DIY) strategy.
