Bangalore: Private Cloud is a term used for companies that install a cloud service for their own and hence, do not rely on other cloud vendors for their services. In the recent years, with the advent of cloud computing, the number of public as well as private cloud vendors has increased steeply.
Though, enterprises refuse to install private clouds sighting reasons listed below:
1. Cloud and Virtualization Mix-up:
There is a wide misconception among enterprises that cloud is just a new synonym for virtualization. They need to understand that it is true that virtualization and cloud are co-dependent on each other but they are two completely different technologies. This will help them in defining their objectives in a better way.
2. Unrealistic Expectations:
They hype surrounding simplicity that cloud brings make everyone think that deploying cloud would be simpler. This is not the case as implementing cloud takes a lot of time and in order to achieve desired results, it can take some time before the benefits are visible.

3. Not Including Customers:
More often than not, enterprises are cynical about the acceptance of cloud. They feel that a private cloud will reduce their productivity. There are businesses which are not ready to take into account the requirements of the customers and force upon their mentality of knowing what is best for others. A change in this mentality will help in deploying private cloud in businesses.
4. Not Following Chargeback Model:
Chargeback model is the one in which the business units are exactly charged for what they consume. But many of the IT offices fail to register the importance of chargeback model. This enables the consumer to create facilities at his leisure without considering the load he will be putting on the cloud provider. Such conditions eventually lead to a sprawl on virtual server. If a pay-for-what-you-use model is applied, it can trigger consumers to create applications that are actually useful instead of creating things at random.
