MetadataShow full item record
A trend towards cloud computing is going on for several years now. Along with this trend, several issues and concerns regarding privacy and security have been emerged. This report starts off by briefly explaining the current challenges of traditional computing, together with the corresponding cloud solutions that moreover explain this rising trend. Mainly, the practice of ‘cloud computing’ is clearly defined and explained, together with a variety of user options. In this work, we have designed and implemented a private cloud management framework that will enable an organization to utilize the cloud services with customized privacy and security. An open-source solution “ownCloud” is used to illustrate the purpose. One particular option is looked at in-depth: establishing a private cloud using an INTEL® NUC 8 HOME MINI PC with Oracle VM VirtualBox. The report gives a step-by-step tutorial for setting up the necessary configurations. Finally, this setup is then compared with other popular commercial cloud services.
