A private cloud gives a single cloud consumer's organization the exclusive access to and usage of the infrastructure and computational resources. It may be managed either by the Cloud Consumer organization or by a third party, and may be hosted on the organization's premises (i.e., on-site private clouds) or outsourced to a hosting company (i.e., outsourced private clouds).
|“||In private clouds, services are provided exclusively to trusted users via a single-tenant operating environment. Essentially, an organisation's data centre delivers cloud computing services to clients who may or may not be in the premises.||”|
