I know that when I ask the question “What is Enterprise Cloud” some people might scoff. A fact that, all the cloud infrastructures and cloud service providers vary in various things and not all the methods can offer the same value as expected by the IT industry. Within the cloud arena, most of the people are aware of only three clouds – Public, Private and Hybrid which are well established. However, a new model known as “Enterprise Cloud” has taken place in the cloud arena.
Enterprise Cloud Hosting is much similar to the Private and Public clouds and offers the same advantages in terms of greater flexibility, instant provisioning of computing power as well as a virtualized and fully scalable environment. The same “private access” is provided by an Enterprise Cloud as you would get in a private cloud. These enterprise clouds are either controlled by an organization or a group of businesses. Similar to other deployment models of cloud, the services in the Enterprise cloud are delivered over the Internet, thus eliminating the need to buy hardware. The commercial grade components usually offer the usability, more features and greater uptime required by an organization.
