What is a Private Cloud?
The private cloud is a business’ IT Solutions offered either over the Internet or a private internal network. There is no access to the public – or there shouldn’t be!
Also called an internal or corporate cloud, private cloud computing gives businesses many of the benefits of a public cloud, including self-service, scalability and elasticity, with the additional control and customisation available from dedicated resources over a computing infrastructure hosted on premises.
In addition, private clouds deliver a higher level of security and privacy through company firewalls and internal hosting to ensure that business collateral (including GDPR obligations around sensitive data) are not accessible to anyone they don’t want them to be accessible too.
All good so far but… a major drawback is that the company’s IT department is held responsible for the cost and accountability of managing the private cloud. So private clouds require the same staffing, management and maintenance expenses as traditional data centre ownership. That’s where Penntech IT Solutions come in to save the day!
Two models for cloud services can be delivered in a private cloud. The first is infrastructure as a service (IaaS) that allows a company to use infrastructure resources such as compute, network and storage as a service. The second is platform as a service (PaaS) that lets a company deliver everything from simple cloud-based applications to sophisticated enterprise applications. Private clouds can also be combined with public clouds to create a mix of the two for cost efficiencies (clearing space and scaling up when demand increases).
