Private cloud is a computing model that offers a proprietary environment dedicated to a single business entity. As with other types of cloud computing environments, private cloud provides extended, virtualized computing resources via physical components stored on-premises or at a vendor's datacenter.
One of the advantages of a private cloud deployment is the enhanced degree of control offered to the organization. Because the private cloud is only accessible to a single business, that organization has the ability to configure the environment and manage it in a manner that is uniquely tailored to the specific computing needs of the company.
A private cloud strategy may be comprised of hardware hosted locally at a facility owned by a business, or it may be hosted by a cloud service provider.
Private cloud solutions bring value to an enterprise by abstracting computing processes in a manner much more efficient than traditional virtualization. A few of the primary advantages include:
Virtual desktop infrastructure
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) offers critical benefits to IT, including improved security and centralized desktop management, but the ability to securely access a remote Windows or Linux desktop isn’t enough in today’s organizations.
The demands placed on IT require a more evolved approach. Organizations need to optimize user experiences to increase adoption, maximize capabilities by minimizing the number of consoles to manage, and ensure sensitive data stays safe — even in BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs where employees access apps and data from personal devices.
