Virtual Private Cloud Explained - What Are the Benefits?

Est. Reading: 3 minutes

A VPC (virtual private cloud) is a cloud computing solution that uses a public cloud to provide a private cloud environment. It gives isolated resources within a public cloud that aren’t shared with other public cloud users.

It’s basically a private cloud within a shared infrastructure using VLAN and a private IP subnet. This combines the best of both worlds and gives lots of benefits to enterprises. Here are some of those benefits.

Improved Data Management

When you use an on-premise server, you have full control over your internal data, but you have a fixed infrastructure, you need to manage independently.

With a VPC, you don’t need to worry about various data management processes, such as backups and disaster recovery. Your VPC provider handles those processes similar to what public cloud providers do.

But how does a virtual private cloud improve data management when it’s allocated within a public cloud?

Your private cloud is entirely separate from other clouds, ensuring that your data doesn’t mix with other public cloud users’ data. It’s independent at the network level, meaning it gives you much better control over your data.

Improved Security

All of the data movement within the VPC stays within the enterprise firewall. It never crosses the internet, despite being within a public cloud. That means you can safeguard your cloud data at the subnet and instance level.

What’s more, a virtual private cloud managed by hosting providers typically has more resources for maintaining, upgrading, and updating the infrastructure regularly. That gives you complete peace of mind, as you can rest assured that all your data will stay safe and secure.

Better App Performance and Bandwidth

Since none of the data within a VPC crosses the internet, you can forget all about various internet-related issues. As VPCs are completely isolated from those problems, they help improve app performance and bandwidth. 

With virtual private cloud managed hosting, all your apps can perform seamlessly, as there will be no latency issues. You can prioritise any app’s network traffic to optimise it and remove potential blockages and other related issues. You can enjoy high levels of uptime and eliminate potential business disruptions.

Reputable VPC providers ensure almost 100% uptime to help every customer run their operations smoothly.

Cost-Effectiveness

Last but not least, a virtual private cloud can help you save money in the long run. VPCs work on the public cloud, which means that all the organisations that use VPC services share costs with one another. More specifically, they help bring down the costs of VPC solutions.

Having a VPC also means no maintenance costs or fees for hardware upgrades and software updates. You pay for what you use, just like you would with a public cloud.

Conclusion

A VPC provides you with a secure environment where you can better manage and control your data and ensure your apps perform seamlessly without any potential latency or downtime issues. It’s flexible, easy to integrate, and provides long-term cost savings.
