What is Private Cloud?

To the cynics, the "private cloud" looks a lot like what we used to simply call an on-premises data centre or server room. The difference is that it's often virtualized software, and automation to organise your infrastructure like the public cloud.

While this offers some of the flexibility found in the public cloud, the big benefit for private cloud is that it gives you more control over security, data privacy, and compliance.

Private clouds are best suited for large organizations that need strict security, latency, and regulatory and data privacy levels. Businesses requiring high-performance access to file systems can also benefit.

Advantages of a private cloud:

  • More flexibility your organization can customize its cloud environment to meet specific business needs.
  • Improved security resources are not shared with others, so higher levels of control and security are possible.
  • High scalability - private clouds still afford the scalability and efficiency of a public cloud.
