The Enterprise Private Cloud & Your Business


True private cloud infrastructures provide on-demand self-service, broad network access, rapid elasticity, and measured service instantaneously.



Before you find out who greatly benefits from the enterprise private cloud - EPC, it’s best to first understand what it is exactly. The National Institute of Standards and Technology define the private cloud as a “cloud infrastructure [...] provisioned for exclusive use by a single organization comprising multiple consumers (e.g., business units). It may be owned, managed, and operated by the organization, a third party, or some combination of them, and it may exist on or off premises.”*

So basically, EPC isn’t multitenant. It is meant for one organization and one organization only. The public cloud is to the private cloud as a motel is to the Hearst Castle. Both house contents, but one is created with the intent to share space, while the other’s primary focus is that of private use.

But it’s more than that. Enterprises are eager to throw a bunch of servers in a data center, then virtualize them. That’s not a cloud, that’s merely virtualizing servers and making them available to your IT organization, the same way you always have. Instead, true private cloud infrastructures provide on-demand self-service, broad network access, rapid elasticity, and measured service instantaneously to any company’s IT department. Thus, the popular cloud benefits are now readily available to an entire organization under the private cloud model.
