Advantages of Using Private Cloud Providers

Higher Flexibility

Unique applications, operating systems, and hypervisor can be run in private cloud since other customers of the private cloud provider aren’t affected. This also includes legacy systems.

Federation

You can federate private clouds from your on-premise data center or other private clouds with VMware and other hypervisors.

Cost Predictability

Since you have control over the number of servers you require, your month to month billing is more predictable but with good scaling capabilities like public cloud.

Easier Control for Compliance

With higher control over the components in your private cloud, you can tailor your environment to pass tighter compliance standards. Dedicated hardware requires less explanation during auditing by 3rd parties.

More Management Options

There are many private cloud firms that still offer full management through the operating system of their private cloud. This includes proactive monitoring, patching and DBA services which are handy for firms that don’t have a full operations staff.

Lots of Options

There are hundreds of private clouds in the marketplace which you can choose from. This allows for multiple quotes, competitive pricing and a wide variety of capabilities.

Should you be using Private Cloud Provider?

Private cloud is a great option for many firms. It offers excellent integration, a healthy partner ecosystem, and millions of trained engineers who are certified. Here are some issues we’ve seen in when using public cloud which we outlined in video called the disadvantages of cloud computing.

Lack of Fully Implemented DevOps Strategy

Some firms have made the move into public cloud after a fully managed environment from a hosting company. While DevOps is the way of the future, moving into public cloud with no full operational model, trouble ticketing system, or lacking key expertise such as backup engineers have caused numerous issues. These issues tend to be dealt with by hiring consultants to fill in the gaps which cause public cloud cost savings to diminish.

Unlimited Scaling + Unlimited Bills

While nearly infinite scaling is a dream, left uncheck has caused firms to have wildly high cloud computing bills. Entire practices and software categories have been created around cloud cost management in an effort to reduce OpEx spending that exceeds in some cases the past OpEx and CapEx spending that firms faced. It’s important to develop systems that can scale back and return resources to the cloud provider when not needed.

Vendor Lock In

Many public clouds implement open source software which allow cloud instances to be portable. Modifying open source packages means that those instances cannot be easily shifted internally or to other clouds making it to leave a vendor in the future. Some of these issues can be mitigated through the use of cloud orchestration software which can be costly if purchased commercially.
