A private cloud is simply a cloud built specifically for one organisation and can be located at their location, data centre or a third-party site. Whilst public cloud offerings are often the default for many organisations and applications, a very real option for some is to utilise a private cloud.
A private cloud is attractive to organisations whose needs and uses include:
- Higher levels of control and management
- Greater security concerns
- Governance, compliance and assurances around data location
- Predictable (and heavy) workloads
- Business critical applications
However, like every choice, there are issues to carefully consider:
- Time and resource consuming infrastructure conﬁguration and maintenance
- Inconsistent visibility into infrastructure utilisation and cost
- Sometimes inflexible commercial models
- Ever increasing complexity with custom requirements in every project
A public cloud, implemented correctly, can still deliver the generic cloud benefits. We can help you design, build and operate a dedicated private cloud infrastructure that is made for your specific business or application requirements and will provide the benefits of agility, cost optimisation, security and flexibility.
We can support your business through private cloud adoption
Our experience suggests it’s not just the functionality of the private cloud itself that will deliver the return on investment and the potential benefits you require. What’s crucial is how the solution is designed and implemented, how the migration is managed and how the users are supported post set-up.
We are private cloud design, connection, migration and management experts
Embracing a private cloud can be more challenging than you may first think. Even the largest, best resourced organisations need support now and then. If you don’t have the time or resources, then work with a partner who has done it all before. A partner who can help you realise the full benefits and has a proven methodology to manoeuvre you successfully through the adoption challenges.
We will work with you to create a cloud roadmap that maximises value to your organisation and enables you to build and manage an infrastructure that makes your business truly agile.
Acora can help support you in four ways:
- Private clouds have real benefits vs public clouds
- They are flexible, secure, reliable and scalable
- They do require additional expertise
- Consider the migrate and manage issues upfront
Design your cloud
We start by understanding your existing IT model and develop a cloud strategy with you.
