What is Private Cloud Hosting?
Private cloud hosting and public cloud environments are similar. Both provide businesses with a flexible, secure and scalable infrastructure that hosts applications, services and data. The only difference between the two is that a private cloud is operated either by your business, a data centre or a managed hosting provider.
How does Private Cloud work?
Just like Microsoft Azure, private cloud solutions allow organisations to host their services within a cloud environment. The big difference is in who owns the hosting service. Choose BCN Cloud, and we can host your infrastructure, fully or partially, within our data centre. We give you extra reassurance that your business-critical data is safe and easily accessible at any time. If you decide to host a private cloud environment within your data centre, that’s ok too! We can still help you to provision the best server hardware and integrate your existing infrastructure. We’ll even provide ongoing support.
Different solutions to Private Cloud
Managed Private Cloud
Managed private cloud environments allow you to host infrastructure within your data centre. Then, working with a partner, your hardware is provisioned and installed. With a managed private cloud solution, such as BCN Cloud, you’ll always know where your data is and that it’s protected.
Hosted Private Cloud
Managed hosting providers operate private cloud environments. All data and information hosted within this infrastructure will continue to be owned by your business. Therefore, the hardware and connectivity is the responsibility of your provider, who’ll also offer maintenance and problem resolutions.
The Benefits of using Private Cloud
Hosting a private cloud environment means you control your data, information, and access rights. Likewise, if you decide to host with BCN Cloud, you’ll still have control and access to your data at all times.
Scale up and down your private cloud storage needs during peak times, as and when required.
Either host your data in a private cloud estate or with a partner for maximum security. However, please be mindful that it is you and your partner’s responsibility for security hardware updates.
Tailor an environment to meet your needs. With private cloud hosting, you can build a tailored cloud infrastructure with your partner to fit your business, unconstrained by public solutions.
