Many businesses have found themselves making the switch to the cloud, and when you look at everything it offers it's not hard to see why. They give a wealth of benefits that most would be hard-pressed to ignore, such as improved security and the ability to access your data from anywhere in the world. However, there is one type of cloud solution that stands above the rest. One that provides and offers more than the other options. That option would be a private data center, and it has so much to offer in terms of benefits for your business.

What is a Private Data Center

For those who do not know, a Private Data Center (PDC) is a collection of servers in a remote location that provides all the computing power your business would require. Your software applications and data files are stored at the PDC and can easily be accessed via a reliable Internet connection. Allowing you to essentially utilize a virtually unlimited number of servers to support everything your business needs to operate smoothly. However, its benefits don't just end there as it also has the following to offer:

Benefits of Using a Private Data Center

  1. Improved Security

    Cyber threats have evolved. They are no longer just hackers singling out a target. Now they are automated attacks using wide nets to catch as many victims as they can. Now you need the right protocols, compliance, and security software to keep your data protected. However, that can be a costly endeavor for many businesses. Luckily PDC environments are professionally run, with audits already being regularly performed by 3rd parties to ensure security is up to regulation. Meaning you get consistently improving security on top of the other benefits a PDC provides.

  2. Disaster Recovery

    Whether it be ransomware or a natural disaster, your data can be lost in an instant, and getting it back takes much longer. Data Recovery can be a major headache for any company to deal with and resolve. That is unless you are using a PDC, which lets you recover entire servers in minutes. Even if your office is currently unusable due to a natural disaster, you can have your business up and running in no time. As the remote capabilities of a PDC allow employees to work from anywhere, letting your business adapt and overcome any unexpected event that comes your way.

  3. Cost Savings

    Now with all the benefits listed so far, one might think that a PDC cloud solution would be rather costly but they would be wrong. Not only are you reducing expenses with not having to install hardware, but you are also reducing operational cost as well. Here is a list of things you wouldn't have to pay for anymore when you switch to a PDC:

    • Servers
    • Operating systems for servers and workstations
    • Anti-virus and Anti-malware software and management.
    • Disaster Recovery systems
    • Electrical Power
    • Equipment racks and "phone booth" racks.
    • Maintenance fees
    • Yearly upgrade costs
    • Large office spaces to house everything

When you look at everything a Private Data Center cloud solution can offer, you can start to see why nearly seventy-five percent of organizations have started using it.
