A private cloud can be called as internal cloud (most often termed as a virtual private cloud) is an on-demand configurable pool of physical computing resources allocated within a public cloud environment, provisioned via certain level of isolation between the different organizations (it can be denoted as users as well) using resources.
To understand the term simply, it is a model of cloud computing that comprised a distinct and secure cloud based environment in which a specific user can operate. It is a marketing term for enterprise computing architecture that will provide computing power as a service within a virtualized environment using an underlying pool of computing resources. However, under the private cloud model, the physical computing resources are allotted to a single organization and therefore, it is only accessible by that individual person with greater control and privacy.
It delivers similar advantages like public cloud such as scalability, multi- tenancy, the ability to provision machines, on-demand service, and creating multiple machines for complex computing tasks, such as Big data, but through a proprietary architecture. A Private cloud is best for businesses that have ongoing or unpredictable business needs and that require direct control over their applications.
