The Private Cloud is based on dedicated infrastructures to isolate resources and services. As with other types of Cloud environments, a Private Cloud uses virtualization technology to bring together shared IT resources and automatically provision them according to business needs. As a result, an organization can scale up and down and optimize the use of its resources.
The Private Cloud is based on the isolation of resources and services. The associated infrastructures are dedicated to your private cloud. There are 2 types of Private Cloud: Internal and External.
An Internal Private Cloud means that a company invests in its own infrastructure (On-Premise), often via colocation (Scaleway Datacenter), and makes it available to its users and business services on a self-service basis.
An External Private Cloud is based on an infrastructure hosted outside the enterprise by a service provider (Scaleway Dedibox).
On-Premise hosting is the use of hardware (servers, networks, storage) purchased by the customer and hosted in its own datacenter or collocated in a data center to allow for controlled and isolated management of all layers of low-level infrastructure. Hardware equipment must be purchased, as opposed to monthly server rentals. This purchase can be amortized or leased for financial reasons.
On-Premise hosting allows for all security aspects to be managed directly.
When using a Public Cloud, customers needs to know about certification, the physical location of data hosting infrastructure, datacenter auditing, team meetings, etc. The choice between the two options will be made on a relationship of trust, and on the resources pu in placed by the service provider. Scaleway has teams of experts at your disposal to provide you with transparent information.
