Private Cloud Computing Intro

Private Cloud Computing Intro: In a private cloud, a single organization has access to the entire cloud infrastructure. The typical private cloud is provisioned for the sole use of a single organization using cloud technology, with the organization managing the private cloud and its business units comprising the cloud’s tenants. A common reason for implementing a private cloud is to deliver a virtual desktop integration (VDI) environment to the organization and its users. The private cloud becomes a virtual private cloud (VPC) when a third party owns and manages it for the organization.

Private Cloud Computing Intro: How do They Work?

A private cloud serves a single organization with its resources. Thus, a private cloud can be seen as a single-tenant environment, with its resources reserved exclusively for the use of a single organization. It can be based on or off-premises, and either allotted already existing resources within the organization’s IT infrastructure or built using added resources.

When you outsource the management of your private cloud to a third-party provider, your cloud becomes a virtual private cloud (VPC). While this setup does not seem to be that much different from a public cloud, the resources allotted to your cloud by the provider are reserved exclusively for your end users. The VPC itself is secure from the rest of the public cloud infrastructure maintained by the provider, without any other users allowed access to it. A VPC may cost more than a public cloud solution.

Private and public clouds are among the major types of cloud computing. A hybrid cloud that puts components requiring more security in private clouds and others with less intensive security requirements in the public cloud is another. There is also multi-cloud computing, which utilizes several cloud providers to meet different business needs.

The Benefits of Private Cloud Computing

Each cloud computing model has its own benefits. For private cloud computing, these include:

Private Cloud Computing Intro: How it Differs from Public Cloud Computing

Public and private clouds share some features, foremost among which is their use of cloud technologies such as virtualization and automation, and the way they offer resources on demand and over the Internet. However, these types of cloud services also have their differences, including:

As to which is best between a private and public cloud, the answer lies in your organization’s unique requirements. As always, exert due diligence to ensure that what you are venturing into is the best for your organization.
