Take on the power of the cloud with the control and security of a dedicated environment
As organizations continue to take on different advanced technologies to improve efficiencies in their business, cloud computing is probably one of the latest, albeit controversial, advancements that they are looking into. And though public cloud has its advantages, it also entails security risks apart from being shared by multiple organizations. To enjoy the benefits of cloud without concerns about privacy or lack of data control, you may want to develop your own private cloud with the help of our expert technicians at ArcLight Group.
Advantages of private cloud
Private cloud is a type of cloud computing that delivers the power, efficiency and features of a public cloud, but with the security, control, and performance of a proprietary architecture.
Private cloud offers hosted services to a limited number of people behind a firewall, so it minimizes the security concerns some organizations have around cloud. It also includes self-service, multi-tenancy, and the ability to provision machines and change computing resources on-demand, so you pay only for what you use. As a result, it is best for businesses with dynamic or unpredictable computing needs that require direct control over their environments. If you have mission-critical workloads, security concerns, uptime requirements or management demands, it is best that you provision a portion of your existing data center as an on-premises -- or private -- cloud.
Making the move to private cloud
If you’re thinking of having a personal cloud for your business, bear in mind that they are complex to operate. It requires experts who understand cloud architecture and know how to upgrade, patch, secure, monitor, and scale a cloud environment. It you have an on-premises IT, deployment carries the same staffing, management, maintenance and capital expenses as traditional data center ownership. Therefore, if you want to reduce your organization’s on-premises IT footprint, our cloud specialists at ArcLight Group can deploy a private cloud infrastructure for you.
