DFW IT Pros April 1st Meeting – Corporate Strategy for Adopting Enterprise Clouds (Private vs Public)
Join us April 1st for a Presentation on Cloud Computing by Rackspace.
Managed Private Clouds
What Exactly is a Private Cloud? A Private Cloud, sometimes called an Enterprise Cloud, is simply a dedicated hardware environment (pooled resources) with avirtualization layer running on top, allowing you to create and manage multiple virtual servers within a set of physical servers. Since it’s a dedicated environment, you—and only you—are living on it.
Your Mission Critical Applications are Ready to Run on a Private Cloud
Most clouds that people are familiar with are the public clouds, also known as shared clouds or private virtual servers. These clouds have hundreds or even thousands of businesses running in isolated containers within the same physical environment. And there are a lot of benefits to public clouds. But for some businesses, certain feature limitations and the implications on an application’s architecture are definite drawbacks. They make it too difficult to transition from a dedicated environment to a public cloud.
Private Clouds, however, are an easy step into the realm of cloud computing. Each customer is physically separated on their own dedicated hardware. Not to forget that their support is also handled like a traditional managed hosting environment. So high levels of security, reliability, performance, customization and service are simply inherent to the solution. Yet you can still scale quickly, optimize your hardware resources and get utility billing for your VMs (Virtual Machines)—which are some of the benefits that make clouds so appealing in the first place. Think of it as getting the best of the cloud combined with the best of managed hosting—without the limitations of either.
