What is the differences between Private Cloud and IaaS.

Post by Gaurav Mittal » Tue May 26, 2015 9:55 pm

I am badly confused on the concept of a private cloud. :o

Actually would like to ask if there is any difference between IaaS and private cloud? Do you think we can say say private cloud is the same thing as a data center like Esxi, that hosts VMs in an EMC storage on premise?

There are public, private, and hybrid clouds. A public cloud is where multiple customers can store data in the cloud; a private cloud is where a company sets up a cloud on their own intranet; a hybrid cloud is one with public and private components. Note that none of these have anything to do with what is being stored in the cloud -- it could be IaaS, SaaS, Paas but which one (or more) of these would not change the definitions of public, private, and hybrid cloud. Note that a company with a data center may -- or may not -- have a private cloud; there is more to a cloud than just a data center.
