A self-run private cloud is an on-premise virtualized data center, built by your organization and run by your organization. A true private cloud differs from traditional server virtualization in that it bears the distinct hallmarks of cloud: pools of compute resources, broad access to data, rapid scalability, self-service provisioning and the ability to measure usage.
- Customized line-of-business applications
- Data and applications with high security and compliance requirements
- Cloud initiatives where you have recently made large on-premise investments
- Workloads that require a high degree of control
- Mission-critical workloads
Self-run data centers are typically capital-heavy. They require allocations of gear, space, environmental controls, etc. These same physical assets must be refreshed in time, leading to an IT lifecycle driven by capital expenditures.
Control: You completely control the environment.productivity, manageability, and scalability.
Security: You own the infrastructure. You are able to establish security and compliance standards, as well as enforce and measure them.
Flexibility: It's your environment, and you have more ability to customize than with most other cloud technologies.
Elasticity: If you need to rapidly expand your capacity beyond current levels, it will require provisioning the additional resources required. In addition, you will always be maintaining your maximum capacity.
Resilience: Some self-run private clouds are highly resilient. However, you have to build and maintain that resiliency.
Mobility: The technological capabilities are available to provide wide and mobile access, but you are responsible for setting up and maintaining the environment.
