Private cloud wrongly carries a loose definition of data in one’s own data center or managed by a provider. That is infrastructure not a cloud. A cloud must be made up of the following characteristics:
It must be automated in terms of deployment and management
It must be API driven
It must have elasticity
It must be self-service
In some instances, it must have some concept of multi-tenancy.
A private cloud allows you to automate a lot of your daily operational tasks and gives users some control over those tasks. By taking away tasks from individual persons and handing it to software, you are empowering your cloud to create its own networking, provision its own storage and allowing it to manage its own path. If you are still manually creating tasks in your environment, you may want to rethink your “cloud” strategy.
What questions should you be asking before building your cloud architecture?
Who is Private Cloud for?
Private cloud isn’t really defined by a market segment or size. It is for environments that are more dynamic, where change and adaptations are integrated quickly without human intervention. If I want to create another network or firewall rule, I should be able to do that within the private cloud environment without having to wait on someone in the IT department.
