What is Private Cloud Computing?
A private cloud service, which can also be called an internal cloud or enterprise cloud, means that the computing infrastructure is hosted on a private platform in the customer data center. It is dedicated to a particular organization and not shared with other organizations. A key technology to help organizations enable a private cloud is virtualization. Virtualization helps organizations realize
cost savings by letting them leverage their existing hardware infrastructure and not have to purchase additional equipment similar to a public cloud. The difference, of course, is that the private cloud resides at the customer’s location and offers customers more control over the infrastructure. It’s important to keep in mind that a private cloud also offers on-demand capability where more services can be added quickly as needed.
A private cloud is a scalable cloud environment—providing the agility and efficiency of a public cloud—built on infrastructure dedicated exclusively for your organization. It can be hosted in your own data center, or ours.
Private clouds are ideal when you need to accelerate innovation, have large compute and storage requirements, or have very strict control, security, and compliance needs.
The cloud infrastructure is provisioned for exclusive use by a single organization comprising multiple consumers (e.g., business units). It may be owned, managed, and operated by the organization, a third party, or some combination of them, and it may exist on or off premises.
A private cloud from MVP in effect is a "try cloud computing at home" instead of turning to an Internet-based service. The idea is that you get all the scalability, metering, and time-to-market benefits of a public cloud service without ceding control, security, and recurring costs to a service provider.
MVP will build and manage your own private cloud infrastructure custom tailored to your companie's specific need. Call us today for a cloud assessment!
