Organizations with more stringent security, regulatory requirements, may have more difficulty moving from a completely private infrastructure/environment to a very shared, public, and open one. The alternative is the Private Cloud, which uses emerging technologies powering the public cloud, but contains it within the organizational environment (firewall).
Access is restricted to its core users, usually organization employees and business vendors/partners. The state of Arkansas has taken this approach by offering Private Cloud services to it’s customers. Private Cloud services include:
