Private Cloud

    Gain the freedom to control your date, no matter where you run your workloads

    A private cloud consists of cloud computing resources used exclusively by one business or organisation. The private cloud can be physically located at your organisation’s on-site datacentre, or it can be hosted by a third-party service provider. But in a private cloud, the services and infrastructure are always maintained on a private network and the hardware and software are dedicated solely to your organisation.

  • Advantages of a private cloud:

    • More flexibility
    • your organisation can customise its cloud environment to meet specific business needs.

    • More scalability
    • private clouds often offer more scalability compared to on-premises infrastructure.

    • Controls:
    • Better controls for data, users, and information assets.

    • Cost:
    • Initial investment for hardware is very high in case of an on-premises infrastructure.

    • Security:
    • The cloud belongs to a single client. Hence, the infrastructure and systems can be configured to provide high levels of security.

    • Superior Performance:
    • Normally private clouds are deployed inside the firewall of the organization’s intranet which ensures efficiency and good network performance.

    • Easy Customization:
    • The hardware and other resources can be customized easily by the company.

    • Compliance:
    • Compliance is achieved easily in private clouds.

  • Disadvantages

    • Cost:
    • Costs are substantial in the case of building an on-premises private cloud.

    • Under-utilization:
    • In some instances, the resources subscribed can be under-utilized. Hence, optimizing the utilization of all resources is a challenge.

    • Capacity ceiling:
    • Due to physical hardware limitations with the service provider, there could be a capacity ceiling to handle only certain number of servers or storage.

    • Vendor lock-in:
    • This can be a major impediment in private cloud adoption especially when the hardware and infrastructure is outsourced. This is a service delivery technique where the client company is forced to continue with the same service provider, thus preventing the client to migrate to another vendor.
