Definition Edit

A private cloud is a cloud infrastructure that is operated solely for a single organization. It may be managed by the organization or a third party and may exist on-premise or off-premise.

Overview Edit

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.[1]
