Dedicated Cloud: Neither private nor public
The 3 types of cloud
When we talk about cloud, most users automatically think of public cloud: Unlimited shared resources available on demand, somewhere over the internet.
Private cloud is usually defined as the cloud built internally within your business.
Dedicated Cloud opens up a 3rd option or 3rd type of cloud, which is compatible and can be combined with the other 2.
This cloud is more long-lasting and robust. It's secure, transparent and above all 100% dedicated on all layers of the infrastructure. It's your virtual datacentre.
The term "hybrid cloud" refers to the combination of several types of cloud.
Public or Dedicated Cloud
Public cloud and Dedicated Cloud can complement each other perfectly, provided that you are fully aware of their limits of use. The main usage categories can be defined as follows:
Consolidating my servers
Use and regular growth
High isolation and security
Disaster recovery/business continuity plans
Hybrid Cloud with your business
Critical applications (ERP, Production, etc.)
SaaS and software licensors
OVH Public Cloud
Testing/Proof of concept
Strong seasonal fluctuations
This list is not exhaustive; it simply reflects usage trends.
Private is not dedicated
Some offers give the option of external private cloud, meaning a public cloud with added security (most often on the network layer).
However, the resources and servers on this type of cloud are usually shared, which may cause:
Low-level security issues
Stability and availability issues
A lack of transparency (location, types of servers, physical infrastructure)
Grey areas in terms of guarantees and SLA
Non-standard management tools, no reversibility guarantees
With Dedicated Cloud, you can overcome all these issues with:
Guaranteed and stable performance
Hardware and 100% dedicated network
Total isolation at all levels
High level of customisation and integration with your IS
Total transparency on the architecture that supports your servers
Outils standards, portabilité simplifiée.
