With this new Development University of Colombo School of Computing now has a private cloud infrastructure consisting of Cloud Infrastructure and Cloud Management technologies that enables Server Virtualisation, Network and Security Virtualisation, Storage Virtualisation, Operations Management, Availability, Automation, Orchestration and Provisioning.
