Question by ITMAN: How to create a private cloud computing network?
I work for a non-profit organization with 6 different locations and each location as its own computer system. I want to have all locations to connect to ONE server, but still have there SEPARATE systems. Is there a way to setup a small private Cloud or is VMWare and VPN connection the only reasonable way to get this to work? Should I consider using a Linux server OS for this project?
Servers- Windows Server 2K3 SBS
Workstations – Windows Xp and Vista

You could buy dedicated connections (ones that don’t use the Internet) to accomplish this. VPN connectivity will be cheaper but also less reliable in terms of data throughput. It all depends on how much upfront and recurring costs you want.
