Private cloud

Private cloud is the phrase used to describe a cloud computing platform that is implemented inside the corporate firewall, under the control of the IT department. As with other cloud models, private clouds will provide computing power as a service within a virtualized environment using an underlying pool of physical computing resource. However, under the private cloud model, the cloud (the pool of resource) is only accessible by a single organization providing that organization with greater control and privacy.

The benefits of the private cloud are clear - you get added flexibility and easy access to resources, while still maintaining full control of compliance and security.

Businesses all over the world are implementing private clouds to amplify the benefits of virtualization and increase agility. Automating repetitive tasks lets you reduce errors and increase speed. The additional security offered by the cloud model is ideal for any organization, including enterprise, which needs to store and process private data or carry out sensitive tasks.

For example, a private cloud service could be used by a financial company that is required by regulation to store sensitive data internally and who will still want to benefit from some of the advantages of cloud computing within their business infrastructure, such as on demand resource allocation.

Key benefits

Security and privacy

Public clouds services can implement a certain level of security but private clouds, using techniques such as distinct pools of resources with access restricted to connections made from behind one organization’s firewall, dedicated leased lines and/or on-site internal hosting, can ensure that operations are kept out of the reach of prying eyes.


As a private cloud is only accessible by a single organization, that organization will have the ability to configure and manage it in line with their needs to achieve a tailored solution. 

Cost efficiency

Implementing a private cloud model can improve the allocation of resources within an organization by ensuring that the availability of resources to individual departments/business functions can directly and flexibly respond to their demand. Not only does this provide a cost saving but it can reduce an organization’s datacenter footprint too.



Even where resources (servers, networks etc.) are hosted internally, the creation of virtualized operating environments means that the solution is more resilient to individual failures across the physical infrastructure. Virtual partitions can, for example, pull their resource from the remaining unaffected servers. In addition, where the cloud is hosted within Lattelecom TIER III Datacenter, the organization can benefit from the reliability provided by the TIER III standard - guaranteed up to 99.98% uptime SLAs, with defined performance and response-time allow business-critical applications to be run in the Lattelecom Cloud. Our well trained and certified engineers will provide you with 24/7/365 technical support to ensure high availability, security and privacy of your private cloud infrastructure.

Fit for purpose

Lattelecom engineers can build your private cloud using newest technologies, software from leading vendors (such as VMware, Microsoft and Citrix) and hardware from the most reliable manufacturers (such as IBM, HP, Dell, Cisco, Juniper). No matter what size your business is or how complex your requirements are, you will benefit from private cloud solutions built by Lattelecom, configured and scaled quickly to meet your specific needs. You will have no delays in adding extra capacity, nor will you need to worry about downtime, upgrades to hardware, capital expenditure or maintenance.
