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.
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).
