Private Cloud: A brief introduction and why we need it

By now we have gained reputation from various types of clients, including education, K-12, clinical medicine, financial, real estate and transportation, serving tens of millions of audiences daily.

While most businesses and enterprises are satisfied with our typical video hosting and live streaming service based on general shared cloud computing, some large-scale enterprises have asked for building cloud video service on their own cloud network (or at least, their server groups), with almost the same functionalities in POLYV’s Video Cloud and Streaming Cloud.

That’s why we raise the idea of Private Cloud – deploy POLYV’s service on a private or internal network.

Usually when we use Video Cloud or Streaming Cloud, the data is stored in the servers of CDNs that not just serve POLYV. Generally speaking, the data in the shared CDNs is safe and stable enough, and the CDN service providers can resist common cyber-attacks (such as DDoS) or technical issues. What’s more, the cost of deploying the service on shared CDNs is less – from the leasing of CDN to the human resources to maintain the service – and is flexible to expand or contract the scale if needed.

Yet, there are some large enterprises requiring a higher level of security, demanding that the data should be stored within the network of their own server, or using specific CDNs that are fully owned or leased to the user and not shared with other users. And for the functionalities, they should be the same as the general video cloud services.

Hence we have the idea of Private Cloud – we can deploy Video Cloud or Streaming Cloud within their internal network, or on the CDN network that are designated only for the enterprises. They can either hire operation engineers, or apply one-on-one technical assistance from our VIP service.

And since the data is now stored in the private network, it is even more secure than in the shared network, taking the private version of Video Cloud and Streaming Cloud service to a new level, and no fear of leaking the data of employees or confidential papers.

That’s all for the brief introduction of our Private Cloud. If you are interested in this service, feel free to contact our customer service for more information, or check out our official website http://www.polyv.net/ for more information.
