The cloud resources (like servers and storage) are owned and operated by a third-party cloud service provider and delivered over the Internet. In a public cloud, you share the same hardware, storage, and network devices with other organizations or cloud “tenants.” You access services and manage your account using a web browser.
With private cloud computing resources are used exclusively by your business. Choose to store your cloud on your on-site datacenter or host it with a third-party provider. Hardware and software are dedicated to your organization where everything is maintained on a private network. Perfect for government and financial institutions, private clouds allow for more customization and control over your environment.
Experience further flexibility with the hybrid cloud. Hybrid clouds combine on-premises infrastructure, or private clouds, with public clouds so organizations can reap the advantages of both. With hybrid, you can use the public cloud for high-volume and lower-security needs and the private cloud for high-security and sensitive business operations. Additionally, "Cloud Bursting" is available with a hybrid cloud. This is when an application or resource runs in the private cloud until there is a spike in demand, at which point the organization can “burst through” to the public cloud to tap into additional computing resources.
Control—your organization can maintain a private infrastructure for sensitive assets.
LSI’s Private Cloud offers flexibility, cost savings, security, and control benefits. These benefits are particularly valuable for organizations with predictable workloads or customization requirements, and businesses in regulated industries.
LSI can provide Private Cloud options through any of our Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud as well as SAP NS2 Fed Ramp partnerships. LSI provides US-based support for our Public Sector clients requiring US citizens.
LSI Cloud computing benefits from virtualization technology that underlies our partner's platforms. Most servers are underused, and virtualization provides private cloud users with improved resource utilization, as workloads can be deployed to a different physical server as resource demands change.
This flexibility and improved resource utilization can help organizations ensure application performance, but also reduce costs by getting the most out of their servers. The LSI Cloud environment will not only save money over a traditional on-premise environment, for some organizations it costs less than a public cloud environment
