A dedicated private cloud works similarly to a public cloud solutions in many ways. First and foremost, like a public cloud, a private cloud is still maintained and operated by an offsite third-party provider, who supplies all of the compute resources. The biggest difference between a private cloud and most public cloud offerings is that with a dedicated cloud the compute resources are carved out from their data centers and dedicated exclusively for your use, while remaining segmented from the multi-tenant cloud architecture of your provider’s public environment. In other words, with a dedicated private cloud you will have specific resources located in a specific data center that are just for you to use. In a public cloud you will have resources in the cloud, but they will not be specified by location or hardware.

Private cloudA dedicated cloud ensures that specific security measure, compliance requirements and business objectives are met while still maximizing the benefits of the cloud. Additionally a private cloud will provide easy scalability, generate additional opportunities for your organization and reduce upfront capital investments, as compared to a more traditional in-house infrastructure system.

For example, when you make the switch from traditional on premise severs to a dedicated private cloud, you no longer have to pay for:

  • Full time resources to manage the environment.
  • Acquisition and management of new hardware.
  • Operating costs, including power, bandwidth or physical space, associated with housing servers at your location.
  • Non-refundable perpetual licenses. With a dedicated cloud, you only pay for what you use and can reduce the number of users at any time.

Additionally, with a dedicated cloud solution your in-house technical personnel can maintain complete control the entire system, have full capabilities for configuration changes and can initiate design changes to the system as needed.

A dedicated private cloud is a great first step for any organization that has been contemplating a move to the cloud, but has concerns about a public or multi-tenant cloud environment.
