We discuss the trend of moving to and the benefits of private cloud.

The private cloud is a natural progression from the days of having stacks of servers and network equipment hidden away in a dusty and neglected cupboard in the office. Private cloud solutions provide a more robust and cost-effective way of running your core infrastructure in a responsible manner. 

Key decision makers in IT have been moving to cloud-based solutions in their droves over the last decade. The switch to moving infrastructure to the cloud has been enabled by the ever-increasing availability of fast and high-capacity internet connections. To fully understand why so many IT professionals have already made the decision to switch to the cloud we must recognise some of the main, yet often overlooked benefits. 

  • Data-centre infrastructures have resilience built in, with redundancies in place for hardware failures, power outages, connectivity outages and much more.

  • More IT expenditure is shifted from CAPEX to OPEX; as we use IT more and more to transform and power our businesses we require regular upgrades to both hardware and software. Cloud based systems recognise the need to continually improve performance, capacity, and security by shifting hardware and license costs from a capital expenditure to an operating expenditure; allowing the scheduling of large IT projects to fit commercial objectives instead of annual financial constraints.

  • Data centres operate with a team of highly skilled technicians on hand 24/7, therefore when issues occur, they are dealt with promptly and effectively with stock of key components held on site to repair systems when needed.

A fully managed private cloud solution takes these benefits even further by packaging hardware and software licenses with common services such as backup, security and consultancy; allowing businesses to focus on their core operations while leaving the management of their cloud infrastructure to a trusted service provider.

Overall, a fully managed private cloud solution is an excellent choice for businesses looking to maximise the benefits of the cloud. It can provide increased agility, scalability, and cost savings, while also providing access to specialised services that can help protect data and ensure continuity of operations.

With the right partner, businesses can take advantage of a fully managed private cloud solution and enjoy the many benefits it offers.
