This 12-page white paper from Emerson provides a detailed overview of cloud computing technology, including a standard definition of cloud computing, common types of cloud architectures and services, and driving factors and perceived risks impacting widespread adoption. It also examines best practices for optimizing critical systems for the deployment of cloud architectures in existing facilities, including implementing a high-density systems configuration, optimizing power architectures for high availability and mitigating complexities with a robust monitoring and management platform.

Finally, it will look ahead to how the integration of next-generation technologies forges a path toward an integrated approach to data center infrastructure management (DCIM), in addition to enhancing the availability of today’s cloud deployments.
