Private Cloud has traditionally been the first step towards ‘cloud’ for organisations that want to maintain control of their infrastructure but minimise the risks of all hardware, data and applications living on their premises.
The simplest private cloud solution is back-up, where the organisation’s data is regularly sent to a data centre – a third party site – from where it can be restored in the case of an outage, cyberattack or ransomware attack.
Having servers and storage in a third-party data centre or ‘private cloud’ has several advantages.
Advantages of Private Cloud
- Redundant power supply (UPS – Uninterruptible Power Supply)
- Redundant network links
- Physical security guarding against unauthorised access
- Managed temperature/climate
- Direct access to the core of the carrier’s networks
- Geographical diversity
- Maintain control over sensitive data and security. Data and applications remain behind your firewall and are accessible only to your organisation
- Reduced operational expenses such as power and real estate
Things to Consider
- A private cloud infrastructure still requires the purchase and maintenance of physical hardware, albeit in a third-party site.
- Private cloud is beneficial where organisations want to maintain control over sensitive data and applications.
- Scaling up and down is not as simple as for public cloud solutions.
- Private cloud infrastructure typically forms part of a hybrid cloud solution.
