Private Cloud?


Private Cloud is probably the most over used and least understood term in IT at the moment. Gartner’s definition of private cloud is “A style of computing where scalable and elastic IT-enabled capabilities are delivered as a service to customers using Internet technologies.” What does that look like for the IT Professional in the Microsoft world?

“A style of computing..” does that mean we dress up for work? No it means that the IT Professional behaves like a cloud provider by offering services to the business not dissimilar to the service level agreements that operate between larger businesses and the IT provider they outsource to. The scalable and elastic capabilities is sort of their now depending on your precise definition of what this means. The underpinning of this is virtualisation, which for most people translates to server virtualisation and using this technology we can spin up more of each type of infrastructure as demand dictates. There are other types of virtualisation like desktop virtualisation that also provide this capability; think of a company taking on 10 new staff , they could be setup with their own environment in a matter of minutes if the business had a PC or thin client equipped hot desk area. Of course even the magic of software isn’t going to conjure up hardware for these people, what I am saying is that the process to get them going can be fast and largely automatic.
