A private cloud (also known as an internal cloud or corporate cloud) is a cloud computing environment in which all hardware and software resources are devoted to a single client and only that customer has access to them.

There are several different types of private clouds. A private cloud can be classed into four basic varieties based on who manages the private cloud environment and where the cloud solution is located: virtual private cloud, managed private cloud, hosted private cloud, and on-premise private cloud.

Any application or service, including websites, web application backends, virtual desktop infrastructure, big data and machine learning applications, and databases, can be run on private clouds.

The obscurity of any private cloud is the most important security aspect. If all else is equal, your private cloud is more secure since fewer individuals are aware of its existence. However, the more business your firm does, the more likely it is that someone will gain access to your cloud platform.

Private cloud computing is a sort of cloud computing that offers many of the same benefits as public cloud, such as scalability and self-service, but through a private architecture.
