What is Private Cloud?

The term “the cloud” has become more and more familiar in recent years, and more people become comfortable with cloud technology every day. Although the general term “the cloud” is reaching ubiquity, not many people are educated about the various types of clouds. For example Evolve IP’s cloud is a “virtual private cloud” – but what is that and how does it differ from a “private cloud”?

What is a private cloud?

Private Clouds provide a dedicated instance of these services for your exclusive use and, as a result, can be secured and accessed privately. While they are housed in provider’s data center, they do not leverage the pool of shared resources, so they cannot grow and shrink and do not include failover and redundancy. Private Clouds most times utilize the same technology (hardware, virtualization, security) as an on-premise deployment, but they are outsourced to a service provider for hosting and care and feeding of the environment.

What is virtual private cloud?

The Evolve IP Cloud is a Virtual Private Cloud that leverages the scalability and failover of public cloud services with the privacy and security of dedicated environments. With end-to-end customer isolation through end-to-end Layer 2 VLANs, Evolve IP customers are logically separated from other customers across our pooled infrastructure. This gives you the ability to connect to our network privately. Moreover, the Virtual Private Cloud functions perfectly with both new and legacy applications and provides predictable, stable, and secure architecture with the resiliency and on-demand expansion capabilities that most expect with the “cloud”. Often referred to as the “evolutionary” approach, Virtual Private Cloud does not require changes to the application framework or special coding for proper migration. The Virtual Private Cloud delivers the best of both worlds.
