  • difference between iaas and private cloud

    Hi All,

    I have searched google and found many articles however I am unable to figure out difference between Infrastructure as a service and Private Cloud. Can you please help me understand the difference between them.



    Thanks

    Roughly:
    Private Cloud - you manage the servers although they are located in a datacentre and you have provisioning tools
    IaaS - you buy e.g. Azure Active Directory, so you don't have any actual servers to manage, just the service

      Not quite. IaaS means "Infrastructure as a Service", so you're renting (virtualized) hardware (servers/routers/switches/whatever) from a hosting provider, and get to install anything you like.

      "Private Cloud" is indeed a cloud infrastructure that you're owning and managing yourself, but that can even include hosting the services locally but making them accessible over the Internet. You don't have to use a hosting provider, although many do.

        Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a way of delivering Cloud Computing infrastructure – servers, storage, network and operating systems – as an on-demand service. Rather than purchasing servers, software, datacenter space or network equipment, clients instead buy those resources as a fully outsourced service on demand. A third party allows you to install your own virtual server on their IT infrastructure in exchange for a rental fee. Generally IaaS can be obtained as public or private infrastructure or a combination of the two.

        “Public cloud” is considered infrastructure that consists of shared resources, deployed on a self-service basis over the Internet.

        By contrast, “private cloud” is infrastructure that emulates some of Cloud Computing features, like virtualization, but does so on a private network. Additionally, some private-based cloud service providers are beginning to offer a combination of traditional dedicated hosting alongside public and/ or private cloud networks. This combination approach is generally called “Hybrid Cloud”.

        The biggest difference between IaaS and Private Clouds is that the customer (you) does not have control over the virtualization layer (hypervisor) or the actual hardware. But everything above those layers is 100% within your control.

            Remote data centre infrastructures managed, accessed and monitored by self serviced models that are known as IaaS! Instead of purchasing your own hardware user can simply IaaS according to his potential consumption, such as virtual storage, online documentation etc.
            IaaS is a SERVICE. Whereas Private Cloud is the DOMAIN on which you enjoy the service.
