What is a private cloud?
Private cloud is a model of hosting where cloud computing services and IT infrastructure are hosted privately and dedicated to a single organization with isolated access. It can be hosted on-premise or by a third party cloud hosting provider.

Private versus Public Cloud
A public cloud is a deployment model where computing services and resources are supplied by a third party provider and shared via the internet with multiple organizations or cloud “tenants.” The physical structure is managed by the provider and enables easy scalability with little maintenance at a lower cost.
Compared to a public cloud, private clouds ensure optimal data control and security. If your organization handles sensitive data or has specific compliance needs, a private cloud environment is the better solution.
LightEdge’s Dedicated Private Cloud Services are right for you if:
- You have high performance and/or robust workload objectives
- You want to avoid CapEx spending for next equipment lifecycle
- You need to move skilled IT staff away from worrying about hardware
- You need to meet strict compliance and security standards, such as HIPAA or PCI-DSS
