Traditions to Transformations: Private Cloud is Changing the Giants of Banking
Banking IT operations have for long remained unfathomably complicated, traditional, and inertial to change. The major contributing factor could be the bank’s close alignment with the billions of end consumers, millions of businesses and their multi-variant financing needs. As the custodians of daily economic practices and the associated unprecedented amounts of sensitive data, the answer to its IT and Ops transformation has never been easy and hence sparsely been realized.
Until the digital era bloomed and the pandemic catalyzed it. Faced with stiff competition and surmounting pressure to swiftly adopt contactless, always available, anytime-anywhere digital banking innovations, BFSI firms swiftly retorted to the cloud; albeit its private avatar. Contrary to the public cloud approach, private cloud allowed banking organizations to have customized, end-to-end control across their cloud stack (fully dedicated infra, platforms, apps, databases, workloads) at near 100% availability, ultra-low latency performance, and military-grade security and compliance round the clock. Banks could leverage the cloud and exercise the same control over their ITOps without requiring to encounter the hassles of sluggish on-prem ecosystems.

Private Cloud for Banks - FAQs
What is a private cloud?
Private cloud is a specialized cloud solution catering to a single, private user enterprise. Often the private cloud architecture is connected to on-prem legacy systems, third party applications with custom features meeting the client's objectives. A private cloud solution can be designed with infra systems and software applications from leading providers such as IBM, AWS, Azure, GCP cloud driven by a fully managed services provider like Cloud4C.
How does a private cloud work?
Private cloud works like a normal cloud solution, the difference being it's resources are shared with only one enterprise and not by a pool of users. Private cloud solutions can be designed on on-prem infra systems or datacenters or hosted in a local, third-party zone. The platforms are rich with applications tailored to enterprise use cases and core objectives. The firm can leverage the private cloud just like any other cloud solution.
What is the difference between a public and private cloud?
Private cloud is deployed on on-premise or local datacenters, designed to address the IT needs of a single enterprise. Public cloud is a platform hosted on mammoth datacenters whose resources are globally accessed by multiple enterprise users at once.
Is public cloud cheaper than private cloud?
Private cloud is generally more expensive than public clouds as the concerned enterprise have to take care of all the hosting, infra management, maintenance, software etc. of the former. Public cloud's infrastructure is managed by the provider and users only pay for what they use without any administrative hassle on the underlying assets. However, organizations with stringent data privacy, residency and custom requirements might opt for private cloud platforms as gaining such turnkey features would be difficult to achieve on the public solution
