What is a Private Cloud?
A private cloud is a model where data & IT services are handled in a private infrastructure. With technology becoming increasingly critical to businesses, the model for computing is changing to keep pace.
Off-premise hardware and software systems are becoming more available, as opposed to on-premise systems. These services are often referred to as Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).
Private Cloud v. Public Cloud
The public Cloud is a good fit for non-critical applications, testing & development environments and short term server needs. Private Clouds, however, are capable of supporting mission critical and line of business applications.
Our team of cloud network engineers is skilled at building different types of private Cloud solutions to run your mission critical applications and processes. They will guide you to determine private cloud v. public cloud for your business.
Don’t be Fooled by the Cloud Hype…
Don’t be confused with the techy jargon or hype. The Cloud is really nothing new. Private Cloud storage uses the same hardware, software and networks you have utilized for your infrastructure over the past 10 years.
The term “Cloud” is derived from the Cloud shape that is commonly used in network diagrams to represent the internet or an internal network. The Cloud was first made popular in the Software as a Service (SaaS) model with some of the large ERP and CRM providers.
Private Cloud storage enhances current technologies by adding the ability to bring resources online faster or access additional resources more easily. The Cloud also introduces the ability to bring resources online on demand.
In the event you need additional resources at any given time, data & resources can be delivered without the up-front expense of the hardware, software and services necessary to activate a new server or network.
Pick your Private Cloud Storage Flavor…
Types of Private Cloud Storage can be designed as on-premise, off-premise or hybrid solutions. You can design a cloud solution to fit your specific business needs.
The end result of your Virtual Private Cloud will utilize the same principles that apply to public Clouds and implement them into a secure environment that supports a select group of users. This private feature allows you to have more control & security with your data.
Once your private cloud is implemented through the use of dashboards and hyper-visors, your team can provide additional processing power, memory, hard drive space or even entire servers to your users.
Reach your Goals…
Your existing infrastructure can be easily converted to a private Cloud environment. Once established, your private Cloud storage will provide centralized administration, improved scalability, simplified access to system resources and more evenly distributed workloads.
Our engineers will help you make your private Cloud a reality through expert guidance based on your business needs.
