Instead of sharing resources and space in public infrastructure, Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) operate with a particular level of isolation between customers. This is accomplished via a Virtual Local-Area Network (VLAN) or private IP subnet on a per customer basis, which enhances the level of security. It is this isolation that has led to the term “virtual private”, which means that the user is in a cloud, but does not depend on any physical hardware.
VPCs were introduced for those customers wanting to take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing but who are also concerned about specific aspects of the cloud. Common concerns involve security, privacy, and the loss of control over sensitive data. In response to this customer requirement, several public cloud vendors ended up designing a VPC offering a part of a vendor’s public infrastructure but comprising dedicated cloud servers, virtual networks, private ID addresses and cloud storage reserved for a VPC customer.
In a VPC model, the public infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider is in charge of guaranteeing that each private cloud customer’s data continues to be isolated from another customer’s data both in transfer and within the cloud provider’s network. This can be achieved via the use of security policies needing some or all of the following elements: tunneling, private IP addressing, encryption or allocating a unique virtual local area network (VLAN) to each customer.
A VPC user will be able to define and directly manage network components, including IP addresses, network gateways, access control policies, and subnets.
Following are some of the key benefits of a <virtual private cloud:
Information passed via a VPC stays within a customer’s control and does not cross the internet. Furthermore, with all customers working on the same back-end infrastructure, VPC providers are known to have immense interest in making things to run securely and smoothly, while continuing to maintain high levels of uptime. In order to satisfy clients, trustworthy VPC providers generally spend too much money in order to attain a recognizable level of security and reliability.
You will be able to prioritize the network traffic of specific applications in order to enhance their performance, thus being able to eliminate potential blockages.
With VPS, you will be able to design the cloud architecture that best serves your company’s requirements. For instance, you will be able to smoothly set up your VPC for contractors to use separate direct connections that are not routed via your internal network.
With all customers working on the same hardware, the VPC provider will be able to consistently upgrade everyone with no downtime. Most VPC providers will rejuvenate the original hardware while constantly obtaining better and faster hardware. This indeed will result in a customer’s workload gradually becoming quicker and more secure.
Your VPC is separated from other clouds at the network layer, allowing you to control your data and preventing it from blending with the data of other entities.
