Enterprise Cloud Backup
Eucalyptus Launches the Third Generation of its Enterprise Private Cloud Software
A private cloud is a service venue that allows enterprise users to search for and acquire compute infrastructure that is customized to their specific needs. When it is no longer needed they release it back to the IT organization. A great example of this is enterprise cloud backup, a set of services which need to meet diverse sets of business and technical requirements.
Enterprise cloud backup becomes a more powerful tool when you combine the best features of a public cloud with the sercurity of a private cloud. Hybrid clouds have become very popular for this reason.
In a hybrid cloud scenario, an enterprise cloud backup means you can encrypt your backup data locally, in your private cloud, before shipping it to the public cloud. This is a terrific solution when you need a secure service for end-users who worry about public cloud security and privacy. If your primary focus for your enterprise cloud backup service is on premise with only backup to (or limited integration with) the the public cloud, a hybrid cloud solution makes a lot of sense.
