Beginning with a brief overview of private cloud computing and the evolution of on-premises private clouds, we will
compare Cisco Metapod to options from VMware and the OpenStack community. We’ll also describe Cisco’s
unique OpenStack as a Service (OaaS) operating model, and present Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analyses
that compare Cisco Metapod to VMware vCloud Director and an OpenStack Do-It-Yourself (DIY) strategy.
Identifying a shortcoming and labeling it a “failure” might be a bit of hyperbole, but it still leaves enterprises
wondering if there is a place for private cloud in their strategy. This paper will attempt to answer this question, and
will focus on the role of OpenStack in particular as a private cloud solution.
