What is Private Cloud Computing?
Private Cloud computing is a model of computing that gives a single organization or enterprise, the sole access to multiple computing Infrastructures, platforms and applications in a single system or service. This means all computing resources will work together to serve only processes from a specific organization or owner.
Private Cloud Architecture
Architecturally, the Private Cloud Computing Environment has all the features of the public or common cloud computing environment such as process/load balancers, expansion or upgrade flexibility and so much more.
However, the Private Cloud environment has the option of being setup remotely or on the owner’s premises. An organization may decide to have their own data centre where the Private Cloud environment should be installed. On the other hand, some organizations may decide to get the Private Cloud computing environment as a service from an IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) provider.
Why consider Private Cloud Computing?
Let’s take a good look at the benefits of a Private Cloud Computing Environment.
The Private Cloud Computing Environment can be cost efficient as it provisions elastic service plans and is based on flexible subscription fees. Hence, an organization or enterprise simply orders what it wants, based on budget and mission.
This is an obvious advantage when using a private infrastructure. The owner is allowed to setup peculiar or more sophisticated security wares and the fact that the facility is not open to the public for management, gives it a default form of security.
Also, network IPs and data are easily verifiable as they are known or predictable, thereby; locking intruders out of the environment.
Using a generic control panel or IT infrastructure architecture may be limiting for certain organizational services or processes. A Private Cloud Computing Environment and Infrastructure can be perfectly customized to what you want.
Reliability refers to the robustness of the system. This does not mean the system will be large in size but it will have sufficient resources to handle failures and process requirements especially at organizational peak periods. Therefore, the Private Cloud Computing Environment is the way to go, if you want to avoid downtime or sluggish responses at peak periods. This is as opposed to a public cloud environment where you have no control over “noisy neighbours”.
This is a lucrative one for ventures, organizations or firms that choose to offer Cloud services such as SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) to its users or sub-clients. Having control over the Private Cloud Computing Environment gives the ability for tuning, based on business plans or packages.
