More control and customization than other clouds
Private cloud is a deployment model where cloud resources are exclusively owned and maintained by the same organization. Typically accessed via private network or internet connection, private clouds can be physically located on-premises in an organization's own data center or hosted by a third-party service provider.
Private cloud enables full control over your data and security, often critical for meeting strict regulations and compliance requirements. Mange and customize your environment while retaining many of the benefits of public cloud.
Benefits of private cloud
Enhanced control, security, privacy and risk-management capabilities
Better cost transparency, control and efficiency of your on-premises hardware
Flexible services delivery and consumption-based models

Private cloud challenges and use cases
Top use cases
- Workload portability
- Optimized workload placement
- Mission-critical applications
- Data center consolidation
- Data locality
- High-performance computing
- Data security and compliance
Most businesses are in the cloud, using a combination of public cloud services while relying on legacy applications and on-premises data centers. After experiencing the benefits of public cloud, many wish to extend those benefits across their legacy IT footprint.
But it's not always an either/or question when it comes to choosing public versus private. Having architected, built and deployed many private cloud solutions for customers in our ATC, we know getting the right balance between private and public cloud environments can be a struggle for many reasons, such as:
- Disagreement and communication delays between infrastructure teams
- Slow progress due to outdated on-premises infrastructure and operations
- Knowledge gaps among infrastructure teams preventing a shift to automated operations
- Legacy operating and individual governance models
- Increasing technical complexity and security/compliance requirements
