We've recently done a couple of posts on the Steadfast blog where we have looked at the public cloud and hybrid cloud specifically. Here's a closer look at the private cloud and the reasons some organizations choose to go this way.

From time to time, we hear people say, “We built our company without the cloud, so why do we need it now?” Well...
IT traditionalists misconstrue the cloud as just another infrastructure platform? That’s a mistake.

It's time to have a discussion about bare metal. Is it part of your big data strategy?
Public cloud is often the go-to for big data applications, but dedicated server clusters are often better suited to IO-heavy resource-intensive Big Data applications.

Sometimes, there are perfectly good reasons for the choices IT makes, but sometimes, they can do better. Remember to consider that when you encounter "Shadow IT."
Shadow IT is a real problem for enterprise IT departments, but there are lessons to be learned that will help organizations innovate and enhance productivity.

In this post, we break down the differences between private and public clouds so that you can make an educated decision between the two. Who knows though, you may just end up choosing both.
