Why migrate to a private cloud?
If data security, unique data management practices, and complete control over your system are paramount for you, migration to a private cloud may be a perfect solution for you. Move your data, applications, and digital infrastructure from a traditional on-premises setup to a private cloud environment. This brings you both benefits of cloud architecture, such as agility, scalability, and high availability, while keeping you the only owner of your data.
After migrating to a private cloud with ABCloudz, you get a significant number of benefits. We outline the most important ones below.
Private clouds are more secure than public clouds because you can define your own security rules. There’s a great space for implementing your own security policies, access control, and encryption practices for sensitive data.
While embracing a private cloud, you pay according to the pay-per-use model allowing you cut your cost. With our help and expertise, you get full control over your cloud infrastructure, which will cost you much less than on-premises data center and even less than a public cloud.
Your system belongs only to you. This means that you no longer need to rely on a cloud provider to support, modernize, or change your data infrastructure. Ask the ABCloudz team to provide you with the highest possible level of system customization.
Some industries and businesses are bound by very strict data management regulations that don’t allow companies to rely on public clouds. If you face such regulation compliance challenges, migration to a private cloud is the best or even the only solution.
If you want to establish high availability and backup practices that fit your business specifically, a private cloud is a perfect solution. Use business-specific system recovery solutions to make sure that your system keeps running even during emergencies.
After migrating to the private cloud, you get unlimited opportunities for the forthcoming development of your data infrastructure. In the long run, this means an opportunity to develop an extensive data infrastructure tailored to emerging business needs.
Who needs to migrate to a private cloud?
Security and control concerns, along with data system maintenance cost-optimization, are the main reasons for migrating to a private cloud. That’s why this service is especially demanded among the companies from the industries that are bound by multiple regulations. Here’s the list of typical customers demanding migrations to a private cloud.
The healthcare industry has many data protection regulations, such as HIPAA. In most cases, top-tier cloud service providers ensure full HIPAA compliance, but some healthcare companies need more specific data protection practices. For such organizations, migration to a private cloud is a perfect solution because it allows them to define their own security practices.
Similarly to healthcare companies, financial institutions should comply with a great range of rules and regulations. Migration to a private cloud is a perfect solution for such organizations because it makes them and only them the owners of their sensitive data.
In most cases, governmental organizations and companies with significant governmental contacts are not allowed to rely on third-party providers when it comes to storing data. That’s why such organizations migrate to private clouds with certain security levels and data protection practices, as well as full control over data.
Large enterprises often work with immense data loads and have specific needs for their management. That’s why many such companies seek simple ways to customize data management and cut costs. Migration to a private cloud system is the fastest and the most cost-efficient solution because it doesn’t require too much effort and helps such businesses implement their own security practices.
Scientific research organizations
