What is a private Cloud?
A private Cloud is an IT consumption mode (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, etc.) that relies on resources (server, storage, network, software licences…) that are exclusively available to a business. The resources can be geographically located within the company’s perimeter (then referred to as internal private Cloud) or located at an integrator/service (then referred to as a private hosted Cloud). The operation of a private Cloud can be realized only by the customer’s IT staff (internal private Cloud), or by an external supplier (internal private Cloud, private hosted Cloud). Available services are provided through a catalogue presented in an automatically activated portal and can be billed according to consumption.
