Can Your Organization Take Advantage of a Private Cloud?

Can Your Organization Take Advantage of a Private Cloud?

If your business isn’t already taking advantage of the cloud in some way, you’re in the minority. Most businesses use it for something or another, depending on the industry and service rendered. Yet, there are all kinds of different cloud-based infrastructures that your organization can take advantage of, which might make the decision somewhat challenging to make. What’s the best type of cloud solution for your business?


You’ll generally be choosing between the public cloud, the private cloud, or some combination of the two. Depending on which you choose, you can expect to reap considerable benefits. Here are some of the details regarding your choices.

Public Cloud
There are certain reasons why a small business might find the public cloud ideal. Most organizations that don’t have a dedicated IT department will see a cloud solution as more additional management and maintenance that they don’t have time for. This is one of the aspects that makes the public cloud so appealing to small businesses with limited time, budgets, and workforces. The public cloud removes the responsibility of managing a cloud from your business’ shoulders while maintaining an acceptable level of security.

Businesses that take advantage of the public cloud, however, do have some reservations about the control of their data--primarily because the public cloud is generally hosted and maintained by the service provider. While this is great from an operational standpoint, it limits your ability to respond to security threats. Therefore, you must be aware of what customization options are available before making a decision regarding the public cloud.

Private Cloud
In direct contrast to the public cloud, a private cloud is hosted on your company’s in-house infrastructure, which allows for more flexibility and customization on your company’s part. You can essentially customize your cloud solution as per your requirements. Companies that have their technology maintained by an in-house team generally prefer a private cloud solution, but sometimes it’s not necessarily an option.

Companies that don’t have an internal IT department and still take advantage of a private cloud solution might wind up stretching their own resources too far. If you can’t properly take care of your technology, then perhaps a managed cloud is a better approach for your particular business. For those who want the best of both the public and private clouds, a managed private cloud is the ideal solution.

Managed Private Cloud
Small businesses that want the benefits of a private cloud solution while avoiding the heavy lifting of maintaining the server hardware should look into a managed private cloud. Infradapt can use our comprehensive knowledge of managed IT solutions and cloud infrastructures to build you an on-premise cloud solution that we can remotely monitor and maintain. If you want even less to worry about, we can host your server on our own network so that it’s as hands-off as you can get.

3 Questions to Consider Before Implementing a Private Cloud Solution

3 Questions to Consider Before Implementing a Private Cloud Solution

b2ap3_thumbnail_security_of_private_cloud_400.jpgWith cloud computing on the rise in the business environment, it’s becoming more clear that organizations need to know what type of cloud solution will best benefit their business model. With the private cloud gaining much attention, it’s important to know what attracts businesses to it. Why should your business implement a private cloud solution, and how should you go about doing so?


The private cloud is an infrastructure that businesses usually host either in-house or remotely through a managed provider. This cloud system is managed and maintained by either in-house technicians, or by outsourced IT professionals like Infradapt. Either way, you need someone who has the skills to maintain your new cloud solution, and this depends on how much control you want over your cloud. This is the main idea behind going with a private cloud; you get more responsibility, but you achieve far greater control than you would if you were to take advantage of the public cloud.

Without further ado, here are three questions to consider before committing to a private cloud solution.

Can Your In-House Staff Handle It?
Before implementing a private cloud solution, you should be absolutely certain that you have personnel on-hand that are ready to take on the responsibility. Integrating and maintaining a private cloud solution is knowledge-intensive, and you’ll need dedicated technicians available to handle your in-house cloud demands. If you’re not sure whether or not your team has the time or skills necessary for such an implementation, you can still take advantage of a private cloud. Infradapt can host and maintain your cloud solution for you, and our technicians are more than happy to help you with any of your cloud computing needs.

Is Data Security a Top Priority?
A good business owner should realize that their data’s security is a top priority, and it’s one of the biggest points of contention when choosing your cloud infrastructure. Compared to the public cloud, which is hosted and maintained by the provider, the average business owner who utilizes a private cloud has the freedom to integrate secondary security measures if they so desire. Even though the public cloud is relatively secure (or at least it’s expected to be), this plays into the fact that a business needs more control over security than the typical Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive user.

How Much Control Do You Need?
Data control is another pivotal pain point that the business owner needs to consider before implementing a cloud solution. Having so much control over your data is a good thing, but only if you’re absolutely sure that you need to have complete and total control. By hosting your data in-house, you can know with certainty that it’s in your hands, rather than in the hands of some third-party cloud provider.

If any of these pain points seems to be an issue for your organization, you should know that a hybrid cloud solution presents many of the same benefits of a private cloud without sacrificing functionality. As reported by Processor magazine, “It’s also safe to assume that hybrid cloud environments will advance as both private cloud infrastructure and public cloud offerings share the market.” You can invest in a hybrid cloud with confidence, knowing that your organization’s infrastructure will be solid for years to come.

Today’s cloud computing technology shouldn’t be daunting, especially with experts like Infradapt standing at your side. To discuss how your organization can fully leverage your business technology solutions, give us a call at 800.394.2301.
