How Do Data Centers Support Private Clouds?

Posted by: Adnan Raja in DRJ Blogs

A private cloud is infrastructure operated solely for a single organization, whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally.  Put simply, it is a layer of cloud applications running on private, dedicated hardware.  By addressing any special privacy and/or security concerns, private clouds offer all the benefits of cloud technologies to your business, along with an infrastructure dedicated entirely to your use.

If desired, private cloud services offer the ability to host applications on your company’s own infrastructure, thus providing more control for enterprises that require it.  Since many companies may have compliance or regulatory issues preventing them from jumping into public cloud, the cloud service tiers are replicated within a private cloud environment, behind the firewall, and maintained within the parameters of the host organization, allowing them to keep their existing infrastructure if desired.

However, if the company chooses, a third-party data center can also provide the hardware and operating systems to match their specific requirements, and layer on the hypervisor technologies needed to run and manage concurrent virtual machines.  The resulting cloud model lets the company have private hardware without the standard hassles, while also receiving the benefits of cloud hosting.

Atlantic.Net offers a private cloud solution that delivers the same scalability, flexibility, and elasticity benefits of public cloud servers with the additional control and customization available from dedicated resources.  We want to give your company the opportunity to make your business more innovative, while saving you time and money.
