CLOUD COMPUTING PRIVATE CLOUD


For When You Want


to Keep IT Private The Case for Building a Private Cloud


One of the most common reasons organizations initially consider cloud computing is to reduce TCO and minimize IT infrastructure investments. However, IT professionals quickly realize that the biggest benefit is IT agility. Using the cloud, you can deliver IT services more efficiently, simplify provisioning and deployment, and rapidly scale to meet the needs of your organization.


Public vs. Private—Things to Consider Despite the benefits of reduced costs and increased agility, many organizations have concerns about the privacy and security of their data. Leveraging a private cloud within the walls of your organization can address these issues. You can build your own cloud infrastructure by creating highly virtualized pools of compute, storage, and network resources— and realize many of same benefits of a public cloud— without the risk associated with relying on an external provider to ensure security.


The Technologies of the Private Cloud Building a private cloud begins with virtualization— both hardware and software. It’s about combining servers, storage, networking, desktop, and software to deliver cloud infrastructure and management solutions, cloud application platform solutions, and end-user computing solutions that significantly reduce IT complexity.
