What is private cloud hosting?

A private cloud is an offsite server environment dedicated solely to one customer, in contrast to a public cloud whose services and infrastructure is shared by multiple customers. Private clouds can only be accessed by their dedicated customer, which is why it is often chosen by businesses and organisations that need to meet compliance regulations.

Hosted private cloud solutions (sometimes referred to as managed private clouds) offer all the benefits of a cloud computing environment which are dedicated to you, such as scalability, data security and accessibility, but the infrastructure is maintained by third party experts, allowing for greater control and flexibility, as well as reducing the requirement for a team of in-house experts.

Why use private cloud hosting solutions?

Private cloud specifications: Seamless business continuity

Private cloud storage gives you high availability and redundancy, meaning that in the unlikely event one part of your system fails, the rest continues to operate without interruption. Digital Craftsmen’s private cloud hosting includes industry-leading disaster recovery and backup solutions, ensuring that your data is easily and quickly restored in case of accidental deletion, system failure or cyber-attack.

It also offers you the flexibility to scale your resources up or down as needed, ensuring smooth operations even during peak business periods.

An extension of your own IT team

Having your in-house IT team juggling cloud management among other duties puts a strain on business  resources. Partnering with a private managed cloud services provider provides you with the access to technical expertise and maintenance  which can be costly and difficult to source internally, and alleviates capacity challenges.

Resilience measures

Private hosting specifications


Private and public cloud hosting are two different ways of storing data on the cloud. A private cloud is exclusive to one organisation or business. It provides enhanced security and control over data as it can be hosted in-house (also known as on-premises private cloud) or through third-party service providers.

Public cloud hosting involves storing data on a platform that can be accessed by multiple users at once. While this is often a more cost-effective solution, it does not offer the same level of security or control as a private cloud.

At Digital Craftsmen, security is at the forefront of everything we do. Our private cloud hosting solutions come with a comprehensive suite of security measures, including advanced firewalls, intrusion detection systems and regular vulnerability assessments. Our Craftsmen constantly research and identify new ways to actively improve and optimise private cloud systems and networks to enhance security, boost performance and make cost savings.

The private cloud computing model  costs are dependent on factors such as the amount of storage required, the level of technical support needed and additional services such as backup and recovery. Digital Craftsmen offer flexible pricing models tailored to fit your organisation’s unique needs.

Our private cloud hosting service offers robust backup and recovery solutions. We provide automated daily backups, off-site replication and the option to customise backup schedules according to your organisation’s needs. In case of system failure, our team of experts are on high alert and work swiftly to restore your data and keep everything running smoothly.

With Digital Craftsmen you’ll get 24/7 private cloud support and monitoring through a web-delivered service desk to ensure your data remains secure and your systems are running optimally.
