Interest In Private Cloud Area Shapes Up As The Market Matures

Interest in Private Cloud Area  Shapes Up as the Market Matures

As their market matures, many companies are contemplating about using a private cloud for their operation, keeping in mind the convenience, better security and control that they can exercise with their internal technology platforms. The use of a private cloud allows a company’s IT department to exercise more flexibility in terms of controlling the internal environment of their servers. However, there are some skeptical views regarding the use of private cloud by companies and whether it is indeed a viable technology that will deliver the results they expect from using the same in their business.Cloud-Store

Private cloud overview

A cloud storage service is a viable tool that companies can use in storing data in their system and making it accessible within their network. Using a private cloud storage will help companies to actively use the data that they need some degree of control from. The data is stored within an infrastructure in their data center which optimizes the company’s employees to access and exchange information with enhanced performance and security. This works like an in-house private cloud that is available within a company’s IT data system. A private cloud computing service is one that deploys an on-premises cloud service through a virtual data center within the company’s IT infrastructure that works with a self service portal.

Growing numbers of companies to use private cloud in the near future

According to surveys, there are a growing number of enterprises that want to use private cloud in the near future to optimize their business. The TechTarget survey revealed that there are different reasons why companies want to pursue private cloud in their operation, reasons among which include improving the company’s financial costs and enhancing the IT operation for their business. But the most obvious outcome of the survey showed that the number of companies looking forward to pursuing private cloud is growing.

The use of private cloud computing is certainly on the rise and there a number of reasons why this kind of technology is becoming popular in affecting the IT market these days. The main reason seen as reported in TechTarget for this growing popularity of private computing is the private cloud cost savings benefits. The technology is seen to unburden the IT systems and maintenance requirements which essentially helps a company to enjoy more productive profits owing to this cost saving effect on the IT workloads and software maintenance. IT managers find the use of a private cloud computing as viable for their computing services.

The survey revealed that small and large companies are more ready to use the private cloud computing system as compared to the medium sized companies because of the unique needs of these companies. Private cloud computing is more convenient in small businesses because they use modest resources of their IT system and using private cloud is a less traditional method that they could adapt to their system. Large companies are more concerned about the cost saving benefit of private cloud computing to offload some of their less critical workloads and projects that do not require stringent compliance on IT system.

Are companies ready to embrace private cloud?

Apparently, not all companies are not too well versed on what a private cloud computing system really is. There has been a misconception about running a virtualized environment for data management from using private cloud computing as described by the Vice President of the Cloud Technology Partners, John Treadway. Even the Chief Executive Officer of Logicworks, Ken Ziegler raised the issue on the common misconceptions regarding private cloud computing and about “cloudwashing” where vendors are selling their public cloud services as bundles of a private cloud package. If you own the data as your company asset but use the services of a third party vendor that is plugged to your own data center, then you are not using a private cloud at all. This can cost you more by using the services of another vendor. A private cloud system is one that should be available from your company’s in-house IT infrastructure and should not be connected in any way to another vendor’s IT server.

With the advent of the private cloud computing IT solution, more companies are getting a better perspective in understanding what a private cloud really means. Although private cloud computing is not something new in the IT industry, the whole system is not yet fully understood. Thus, it would suffice to say that this cloud computing is neither on its infancy nor in its maturity stage in affecting the fields of IT service management and engineering systems in corporate companies. But many companies are now getting ready to completely embrace the latest IT solution in the form of private cloud computing and with the growing need for using a private cloud, this type of computing system will likely become the future IT service management that companies will soon deploy in their business IT system.
