Cloud factory - Example factory deployment

cloud factory
Part 3 - Example cloud deployment

In our previous article from this series we shared a look at the logical common architectural elements found in a cloud factory solution.

The process was laid out how we approached the use case and how portfolio solutions are the base for researching a generic architecture. 

It continued by sketching the process of how we approached the use case by researching successful customer portfolio solutions as the basis for a generic architectural design.

Having completed our discussions on the logical view of the architecture, it's now time to look at a specific example.

This article walks you through an example cloud deployment scenario showing how expanding the previously discussed elements provides a basis for your own cloud factory scenarios.

Cloud factory - Common architectural elements

cloud factory
Part 2 - Common architectural elements
In our previous article from this series we introduced a use case for a cloud factory, deploying multiple private clouds based on one code base using the principles of Infrastructure as Code.

The process was laid out how we've approached the use case and how portfolio solutions are the base for researching a generic architecture. 

The only thing left to cover was the order in which you'll be led through the details.

This article starts the real journey at the very top, with a generic architecture from which we'll discuss the common architectural elements one by one.
