Enterprise Cloud Q&A with HP Helion: Managed Virtual Private Cloud


Welcome to our new weekly cloud blog series where we answer common cloud questions our enterprise customers are asking.


Question: What is a Managed Virtual Private Cloud?


Private clouds are computing infrastructure dedicated to a single organization and not shared with other entities outside that organization. Private clouds can be implemented in several ways:

  • Private Cloud – a set of computing resources available within an organization operated and located within a single entity

  • Managed Private Cloud – a private cloud located within the organization that is managed and serviced by an external company. In our case, HP Helion has a team dedicated to ensure your private cloud is secure, available, and operating efficiently.

  • Managed Virtual Private Cloud – a dedicated cloud infrastructure to a single organization that is hosted outside the organization in a public cloud and accessed via VPN.

In the case of a Managed Virtual Private Cloud organizations can get the benefits of a public cloud while maintaining the exclusivity found in a private cloud.

  • Regionalized Cloud Location: Data Sovereignty, Low Latency, Compliance, High Availability
  • Op-Ex Financial Model
  • Meet Scalability Demands Instantly
