I am in process of designing private cloud  Datacenter. Main Service for the initial phase is Iaas, Paas and SaaS - (Only mail services planned, Desktop As Service (Daas - VDI), Storage as a service.
I face some specific challenges when designing the solution. Here they are

1. Selection of a multi tenant Firewall. - Since my most implementations are from DELL, I tend to select a firewall from DELL - Sonic Wall. What is your opinion and what all features expected for a firewall placed for Cloud Managed Services Datacenter-   I need to provide Firewall As a service in future.

2. When giving Iaas and Paas, I need to provide access to customer with Public IP to their servers (Virtual Servers provisioned from Pool). In practical , I cannot give each customer with a public IP.  How this is done.

3. Lot of Automation and Orchestration platforms available in market.  Which one you prefer or suggest the features needed

4. Daas - VDI Solutions, which one you prefer. Latency of Application interaction is serious issue.

5. Storage as a Solution - Which is preferred. I need a solution which will give seamless integration with user Desktop. Just like skydrive plugin working with windows explorer


Ok. Definitely, you may think, why can't I ask these questions to DELL or HP. Answer is simple - During the continuous engagement with different vendors, they are suggesting different solutions from their portfolio, as  interests to sell products.  I need our EE experts opinions for wise decisions to select and implement the right solution

I do not think everything that you wanted can be done using a single solution.

Cloudstack will be the closest that will allow you to run your own cloud focusing on IaaS. You can create multiple templates to offer PaaS and SaaS.   I am not sure about storage as a service.

For firewall, based on how you configure/create your zones ( in cloudstack terms ) , you can offer a direct public IP, or a  shared public IP with ports forwarded to their individual virtual instances, and you can create a VPN or provide API layer access.

Cloudstack does provide multi tenant firewall ( using API or Web) .

To explore fully what cloudstack can do, please take a look into this slide:

Hope this helps.
