Is Private Cloud Hosting The Better Option?

Is Private Cloud Hosting The Better Option?

While companies such as Google and Amazon have been putting tons of resources into the world of cloud computing over the last few years, it is becoming more and more obvious that private cloud hosting is going to be the way to go. The two basic groups of cloud services are public and private, and it seems like everyone has their own opinion regarding which is the right one to use for a serious business. While public clouds can definitely be used for some projects that do not require a lot of confidentiality, you are going to want to host the bulk of your business data on a private cloud.

You may already be using cloud services such as Dropbox and Google Docs right now, and these services are great when you are simply sharing information with your clients or trying to get something done quickly. The only problem that you could encounter when you are not using private cloud hosting services is that public services tend to be less secure. The private cloud should always be used when you are discussing sensitive information that needs to stay within the company at all costs.

The main benefit that you get from using a private cloud is that all of the cloud hosting maintenance and servicing is completed in-house. This means that you have complete control over the cloud and will be able to change the hierarchy or security of the cloud in a matter of moments. The only downside to using a private cloud is that you are going to need to hire more IT staff, which will definitely raise your costs of doing business in the long run.

The silver lining to the gloomy cloud of high costs in private cloud hosting is that prices have started to come down a bit. More cloud service providers are realizing that private clouds are the wave of the future, so more resources are slowly being moved to this kind of business model. There are more options in the world of the private cloud these days, which means you can pick and choose the features that you actually need and leave out all of the stuff that you will never use. This kind of optimization is really what has led to a decrease in private cloud pricing over the past few years. As this trend continues, it will become even more beneficial for businesses to keep things private.
