9 Virtually Unbelievable Private Cloud Facts

For many businesses, the safest journey to cloud computing starts with a private cloud implementation. Unlike a public cloud, private clouds allow enterprises to maintain complete control over their cloud environment, while most public cloud solutions surrender IT operations and management to a third party.

The benefits of deploying a private cloud can dramatically impact the way businesses produce and consume IT services. Microsoft has been a notable proponent of cloud computing solutions with its Windows Server and System Center products. Their private cloud services can help businesses realize major cost savings and decrease network downtime. You might say that some of their cloud offerings are so good that they are virtually unbelievable.
