Private Cloud Solution Hub

A private cloud enables organizations to deliver IT as services by providing a pool of computing resources delivered as a standard set of capabilities that are specified, architected, and managed based on requirements defined by a private organization. In a private cloud, an organization controls its environment by using cloud-enabled products on premises or through a hosting service. The journey to a private cloud is often driven by application maturity, performance requirements, regulatory requirements, or specific business drivers. Use this roadmap to explore private cloud concepts and benefits and plan and implement your private cloud solution.
