The Private Cloud

Successful IT project managers plan and implement projects that meet the current and future goals of an organization. For that reason, I thought it would be helpful to provide a Q&A about setting up a private cloud. This information provides information for IT managers when they are tasked with developing a cloud-based network or when comparing the public and private cloud options.

1. How does a private cloud work?

A private cloud infrastructure provides centralized network resources at a remote location. Users are able to securely connect to the network resources from anywhere via the Internet. Applications and data are processed remotely by the network resources and delivered locally to user workstations. This reduces local processing requirements, enabling less expensive local hardware and longer hardware refresh cycles. The remote network resources are backed up and/or replicated to protect critical data; all modifications to network resources are managed at the remote site.
