Private cloud is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Different deployment methods require different approaches to security. The first step is to understand what private cloud means to your organization and how you are deploying it.
- Self-service provisioning: End users can spin up computing resources for almost any type of workload on demand.
- Elasticity: Companies can scale up as computing needs increase and scale down again as demands decrease.
- Automation: IT teams can simplify deployments and reduce risk while alleviating the stress of the cybersecurity skills shortage.
- Pay per use: Computer resources are measured at a granular level, allowing for automated chargebacks to the departments consuming resources.
