Why Do You Need a Redmine Private Cloud

Cloud computing is all the rage these days and there has been a significant increase in the utilization and adoption of cloud computing across organizations, as well as individuals.

 

What Is a Cloud?

 

As reported by GlobeNewswire, “The global cloud computing market size is expected to grow from USD 371.4 billion in 2020 to USD 832.1 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 17.5% during the forecast period.”

 

The textbook definition of cloud refers to the access of software and databases through servers that exist over the internet. These servers, known as cloud servers, are hosted by data centers at multiple locations across the globe. 

 

Cloud computing essentially means that you can store, access, and process data, information, and programs over the internet using cloud servers, instead of your computer’s physical storage.

 

There are multiple types of cloud deployment options, namely public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, and community cloud. For now, you only need to know about public and private clouds, and the differences between them.

 

Public Cloud vs Private Cloud

 

The names of these terms pretty much give away the crux of the differences. The public cloud refers to a structure of cloud service that is operated and rendered by a third-party external service provider that provides services to multiple clients.

 

A public cloud service provider uses the same essential infrastructure to provide services to multiple clients and they share the same network devices, software, and hardware. Public cloud services are provisioned through remote servers, accessible to customers via the internet.

 

A public cloud is the most commonly deployed type of cloud service because of multiple reasons. Firstly, since the public cloud eliminates the need to purchase designated hardware and software, it’s relatively cheaper and you can also save on maintenance costs.

 

Public clouds also offer convenient and cheaper scalability because you can increase the scope of service and storage that you’re acquiring at any time by just paying more.

 

On the other hand, there are notable downsides associated with the public cloud, such as security, flexibility, lack of control, lack of customization, and minimal access to back-end processes.

 

While the public cloud might suffice for some businesses, a lot of them gradually realize the need for a private cloud. As suggested by the name, a private cloud refers to a structure of cloud service that is not shared and is dedicated entirely to a single organization.

 

With all of the cloud computing resources owned by the organization itself, it can have the entire cloud to itself, which is something that a lot of organizations would desire.

 

A private cloud can either be based at an organization’s own site or can be hosted by a third-party service provider that dedicates a designated private server for your organization.

What Are the Perks of Private Cloud?

2. Control

 

Since a private cloud network is dedicated to a single organization, there is a higher degree of control that can be exercised, in accordance with your needs and requirements.

 

3. Flexibility

 

Private clouds can be configured to a much higher degree in order to optimize it in accordance with your business needs.

 

4. Scalability

 

Private clouds are more scalable, and you can scale the resources up or down with an increase or decrease in your usage, respectively. 

 

5. Stability

 

Private clouds are often considered more stable and with effective backup systems in place, you can ensure that even if you lose your data, the backup and recovery systems kick in and your operations do not get affected.
