What is Private Cloud?

A private cloud runs behind a firewall and is dedicated to a single organization.

Private Cloud Definition

Sometimes referred to as on-premises cloud, internal cloud or corporate cloud, private cloud functions just like public cloud, but is run on proprietary systems dedicated to a particular company. It’s essentially the "intranet" version of cloud computing.

Why Private Cloud?

While companies that run private clouds generally have to maintain their own infrastructure, these costs are balanced by greater security and control over data and operations. Computing resources can be configured and managed in a manner that’s tailored specifically to the needs of the individual business, while having both physical and logical separation from publicly accessible data provides multiple layers of data protection. Meanwhile, private cloud shares many of the operational advantages of public cloud computing.
