Private Cloud: A more flexible, customizable cloud
Many of my friends work for companies that are suffering from growing pains…particularly when it comes to managing their IT infrastructure. I always tell them to consider moving their data and services to the cloud. Specifically, I suggest they consider a dedicated deployment — a private cloud.
While it’s true that on the surface, public clouds and private clouds offer the same basic benefits, I feel that for fast-growing companies with constantly-changing requirements, a private cloud offers more flexibility to adapt and evolve as the company changes.
If your company needs to comply with government regulations or requires stringent levels of security to protect customer data (like credit card numbers) or IP, then private clouds also make a lot of sense.
