With the growth of Cloud based technologies, so have the cloud based services grown over the past few years. To meet the demands from the Cloud users, service providers have to support such a service environment that can be deployed and cloned automatically and easily. To help tackling such an issue, the Ezilla, which is considered as a private Cloud toolkit, has been developed. The new approach is automatic converting physical machines into virtual machines (P2V) in Cloud environment. It integrates the de facto Cloud middleware, and coordinated cloud infrastructure services such as storage, computing and networking services to form an integrated virtual computer. The merit of the Ezilla is simplifying the deployment complexity of the Cloud system for the users. The proposed Ezilla toolkit leverages genetic virtualization techniques and cluster management toolkits, such as Diskless Remote Boot in Linux - Single System Image (DRBL-SSI), and the clone OS toolkit - Clonezilla, to orchestrate distributed computing resources and convert physical machine to virtual one dynamically.
