Thursday, August 4th, 2011

The concept of “private computing infrastructure” was first described by Douglas Parkhill, in his book “Basic Principles of Computing Infrastructure” (Douglas Parkhill, “The Challenge of Computer Utility”) in 1966. However, the main objective of the project was a direct comparison of the concept to other industries, as well as identifying opportunities for increased use of hybrid models in order to balance the supply and reduce risk. The concept of private clouds is mainly based on its three advantages: Privacy policy – through the use of private network security – the possibility of limiting access, and the principle of correspondence – because there are many vendors offering solutions to standards compliance. We suggest to consider the main benefits of private clouds in more detail.


Private cloud is a system that emulates a cloud on the private network and provides the opportunity for hosting applications and virtual machines to host your own companies. Use of private cloud is acceptable for companies seeking to restrict access to their systems. You will have full root access, as well as it can identify the server and the location of your data and applications. Companies working in finance or insurance, most tend to increase the safety of their data and want to restrict access to them. In this case, the ideal solution would be hosting it in a private cloud.


Most businesses prefer a private cloud technology because it offers the maximum benefit with minimal investment. Furthermore, the protection of personal information is extremely important if your data is hosted on virtual machines. Since the private cloud is placed on the private network, it becomes possible to ensure 100% uptime. Thanks to the setup features of private cloud, you can get more for your company with the expenditure of much less effort. Setting up of other models also deploy the cloud, it is quite a challenge compared to the use of private clouds. Despite the fact that the share of private clouds had a lot of criticism from defenders of the principles of confidentiality, the technology is selected by government agencies and large IT companies to protect critical data. Companies that host private cloud, are able to manage, monitor and provide communication and virtual storage, between the user and the host company both legally and illegally.


To achieve compliance with standards such as FISMA (USA), Decree on data protection (EU), as well as the requirements of the credit card industry – users can choose the more expensive and limited in release of beneficial community or hybrid deployment models of clouds. For example, Google now has the ability to organize their activities in accordance with the standards and additional requirements of public policy outside of FISMA. Even customers in the EU, contracting with outside suppliers must adhere to the requirements of the EU data export. In most cases, suppliers are certified SAS 70 Type II, which, however, can not be accepted due to the fact that the established standards and requirements are often unavailable and different from each other. That is why many ISPs usually provide this information upon request and after signing a nondisclosure agreement. Many providers offer a comprehensive and innovative compliance program, which brings together the expertise of leading industries and allows the use of technology to the private cloud in business development to achieve their business objectives.
