The private cloud model is closer to the more traditional model of individual local access networks, but adds the advantages of virtualisation. The features and benefits of private clouds therefore are:

Higher security and privacy; private clouds us distinct pools of resources with restricted access to connections made from behind organisations firewall’s, dedicated leased lines and/or on-site internal hosting, ensure that operations are kept out of the reach of unwanted eyes.

More control; as a private cloud is only accessible by a single organisation, it allows an organisation to configure, manage and tailor their network solutions it in-line with their business needs.

Cost and energy efficiency; implementing a private cloud model can improve the allocation of resources by ensuring that the availability of resources can directly and flexibly respond to organisational demands. Not only does this provide a cost saving but it can reduce an organisation’s carbon footprint too.

Improved reliability; even where resources (servers, networks etc.) are hosted internally, the creation of virtualised operating environments means that the network is more resilient to individual failures across the physical infrastructure. Virtual partitions can, for example, pull their resource from the remaining unaffected servers. In addition, where the cloud is hosted by a third party, the organisation can still benefit from the physical security afforded to infrastructure hosted within data centres.

Cloud bursting; some providers may offer the opportunity to employ cloud bursting, within a private cloud offering, in the event of spikes in demand. This service allows the provider to switch certain non-sensitive functions to a public cloud to free up more space in the private cloud for the sensitive functions that require it.
