Why consider a private cloud? If I can put together an email account, online office environment, and group collaboration site in 10 minutes through Microsoft or Google, why should I consider building an internal cloud infrastructure, or leasing infrastructure from a cloud services provider (CSP) to meet my business objectives?
Well, whether you are in the European Union, North America, or Asia, there are compelling reasons to separate your data from a public cloud. Maybe it is related to privacy considerations. Possibly security requirements. Perhaps you need to ensure you have total control over the location and structure of your mission-critical data.
So let?s consider a few of the benefits cloud computing bring to your organization:
The option of outsourcing physical data center infrastructure to a Engine Networks
- Usage-based billing
Software as a Service (SaaS) applications standardization
Rapid infrastructure expansion/scalability
Physical and application level security
In reality, while costs may be reduced if outsourcing into a public cloud, all of the above characteristics of cloud computing apply equally to a private cloud. The main difference is your internal IT department or Engine Networks is responsible for expanding resources as needed to meet your business objectives through a level of physical provisioning vs. simply expanding further into a public cloud resource.
