The Benefits of a Private Cloud

The cloud comes with a long list of benefits, such as easy collaboration, and low-cost. But a growing piece of the cloud, the private cloud, comes with even more benefits. Let’s talk about a few of these benefits, and whether or not it’s the right choice for your company.



Companies that offer access to the public cloud generally have very good security. They do their best to ease the fears that a business’s information is safe on another business’s servers. However, security can only be so good. When security is especially important, a private cloud is the way to go. In fact, a higher level of security is one of the biggest benefits of maintaining a private cloud. Because everything is managed internally, the risk of loss or theft is greatly reduced.


Make use of existing resources

Your company probably has resources that it isn’t using fully, such as servers and IT technicians. Since these resources have already been paid for, why not make use of them? You may already have everything you need to build a private cloud.


Increased control

The added control is another important benefit of running a private cloud. If something goes wrong, you can fix it. If you’d rather something was changed, you have the power to do that. This is not always the case when it comes to a public cloud system. If the needs of your company are highly specific, you may want to consider building your own private cloud.
