Thanks for your reply. It's my first attempt with private cloud. I've worked
with virtualization (ESXi & Oracle VM) and the disaster recover in case of
node failure is what I am trying to know in case of private cloud. I would
be grateful if you can brief about how to define disaster recovers practices
in a private cloud. I don't architect all the applications I do use so I am
looking for he disaster recovery practices in the cloud architecture.
