private cloud

The original concept of the private cloud or internal cloud has existed for several decades and has been activated as a conceptualization in the context of cloud computing. A private cloud is a cloud-like in-house data center that has been extended by a technological layer.

Security and management services are implementedin such a private cloud. As with cloud computing, the administrator can allocate computing power, scale, define interfaces and bill for usage-based services. By pooling the available resources, they can be allocated to company employees based on need and priority. Like the other cloud models, the private cloud model also serves to reduce costs and increase security aspects.

A private cloud can be combined with a public cloud to form a hybrid cloud. In addition, private clouds from several companies in one industry can be combined to form community clouds.
