private cloud

Deploying cloud computing internally. Rather than running Web-based and rich client applications over the Internet, a private cloud employs cloud computing within a company's own local or wide area networks. The term implies that the same virtualization and highly flexible and scalable methods used in huge Internet-based datacenters are also used in the private clouds in the enterprise. See cloud computing and personal cloud.
