As mentioned in previous posts the cloud world can be a real odyssey for many when selecting suppliers, migrating and even defining the model. It is not an easy task, as it will depend on the objectives and needs of each company. Among the most common are private cloud, public cloud and hybrid cloud. So why choose the private cloud?
Among the features and advantages that this model entails we summarize the ones that will give you a more detailed view and make you see your decision clearer.
In any of the models it is essential to know: what it is, how it works and what advantages it offers.
What is the private cloud?
A private cloud is a dedicated environment, which through virtualisation and in a secure manner hosts a company’s resources and information. An environment that only it has access to to manage it.
It enables customization according to relevant security needs and requirements as it supports advanced security and high availability solutions. This prevents attacks, intrusions, crashes, or other incidents that may affect availability or performance.
How is it managed?
Private cloud management is done through virtualization,thus endosting the software to emulate the characteristics of the hardware and thus create a simulated rather than physical computing environment. This allows you to run more than one virtual machine on a single server.
Advantages of the private cloud:
- Control: The company decides what it installs in the cloud.
- Security: No resources are shared, so higher levels of security are easier.
- Speed: Improved performance when staying in your organization.
- Scalability: Flexibility for expanding your capacity when needed.
