Evolution Toward Private Clouds
Private clouds are enterprise IT infrastructure services, managed by the business, with cloud computing qualities such as self-service, pay-as-you-go charges, on-demand provisioning, and the appearance of infinite scalability.
A private cloud can combine both external and internal cloud resources to meet the needs of an application system. Private clouds eliminate the "rewrite everything" effect of public cloud computing. They provide the trusted control that you seek from internal clouds, ensuring that IT meets the security, control, service level, and compliance requirements of their business partners.
Private clouds also provide the ability to change the mix of cloud services to be consumed, as needed. A private cloud eliminates enterprise silos while reducing costs and allowing you to exploit the new economics with much greater agility than traditional models.
Most important, private cloud computing offers a clear and logical pathway that preserves existing investment in applications and information. Each step delivers immediate value and builds a foundation for the next.
