Abstract: Cloud Computing and storage is the topic that is in the heart of every arena of Information storage, computing and processing, on demand resource utilisation and many other. Cloud computing is a computing environment, where there is an abstraction level on software, network devices, utilities, computing power, storage space and location which is readily accessible to the user for its appropriate uses. Linux Cloud Lab provides services on one platform that provides the user with shared resources, software products, operating systems and other devices on-demand. The proposed concept is about providing cloud storage to store and upload binary files, operating system that are provided virtually regardless of the client-side operating system and the computation within the intranet service of the prescribed LAN structure. The users are facilitated with an abstracted and controlled memory space to store and use operating system (like Ubuntu and Windows Server) with their own credentials. CentOS 7 is used for implementation of the proposed framework. Therefore, this is a novel work for establishing a private cloud network for Institute as case study using open source cloud platform.
