What is Virtual Private Cloud?

A virtual private cloud is an on-demand configurable pool of shared computing resources allocated within a public cloud environment, providing a certain level of isolation between the different organizations using the resources.

Difference between public and private cloud?

The main differentiator between public and private clouds is that you aren’t responsible for any of the management of a public cloud hosting solution. … A large company may choose a private cloud, while a smaller business might choose a public cloud

Easily secure your cloud resources within private, isolated networks.
You can leverage multiple layers of security, including security groups and network access control lists, to help control access to virtual private cloud instances.

 How does private cloud work?

A private cloud uses virtualization technology to combine resources sourced from physical hardware into shared pools. This way, the cloud doesn’t have to create environments by virtualizing resources one at a time from a bunch of different physical systems.


  • Firewall

    Restrict access to your servers with the our Managed Firewall.

  • VPN

    Securely connect to your VPC on a smartphone, computer, office, etc. via Xcellhost’s VPN.

  • Private Routing

    Connect between other cloud servers without the need for an external IP address.

  • Logging

    We captures network traffic going in and out of your VPC and integrates this into an easy-to-read report.

  • Load Balance

    Distribute incoming traffic load across multiple servers for improved performance and redundancy.

  • BGP Routing

    Enable Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to your VPN and route your own IP ranges to our Cloud infrastructure

  • Intrusion Prevention Service

    Xcellhost’s Intrusion Prevention Service analyzes network traffic flows and blocks the malicious security threats from coming into your VPC.

  • VPC to VPC

    Connect your VPC network across other projects or even other companies (upon request) with secure VPN tunnels.

  • Customizable

    Configure your VPC to meet your precise requirements. Specify an IP address range to interconnect another network. Or configure Firewalls to control traffic in and out.


  • VPC with Managed Firewall

    The Firewall NATs a public IP address to the private IP address on the server. By default, all ports on the firewall are closed. To open a port, a request needs to be made to our SOC team detailing the specific port to open. For example, you may be running a web server, and you would need to open port 443 to allow HTTPS traffic to flow through.

  • VPC with VPN and NAT

    In this scenario, we have the same functionality as the VPC with the Xcellhost Managed Firewall, but with the addition of a secure virtual private network (VPN) from your network. This gives your company’s system admins, developers, and other authorized personnel a secure way of accessing the environment. We use IPsec and OpenVPN to connect, and we can connect our firewall to your firewall or our firewall to your device. Public IPs still NAT to private IPs, and ports can still be opened and closed.

  • VPC with VPN without NAT

    VPC with VPN and NAT, we can create a secure tunnel from your corporate network to the Xcellhost cloud infrastructure. Additionally, we can completely segment off the public network to the cloud servers. This creates a complete extension of your network into the VPC.

  • VPC with Load Balancing

    In this scenario, we have added load balancing to the VPC. With load balancing, incoming traffic can be distributed across multiple Xcellhost Cloud servers. This creates better performance and additional redundancy.

  • VPC with Replication

    In this scenario, we have added replication to another site with VPC for redundancy purposes. This creates a hot copy of your server to a completely different facility. In a disaster event, we can fail everything over from one facility to the next.

  • Secure

    Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a logically isolated network for cloud resources. VPC gives you more control over how your resources communicate, with isolation reminiscent of what you might achieve running systems on premises.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Should Use a Private Cloud?

Once an organization has determined its cloud needs and priorities, it can determine if the private cloud is the right kind of IT environment.

For some organizations, the private cloud will be the only realistic option to ensure regulatory compliance. For example, HIPAA requires that “electronic protected health information” (e-PHI) is created, received, stored, and transmitted in a way that ensures its confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

What is an internal private cloud?

An internal private cloud is hosted on an organization’s own premises, and is managed by them internally. Unlike with a hosted private cloud, the organization manages and operates the internal private cloud themselves. Typically, this means they will purchase the servers, keep them up and running, and administer the software that runs on the servers

Is private cloud more secure than public cloud?

Private cloud is generally more secure than public cloud, with one important caveat: A business must proactively ensure that security is strong and up to date in order to reap the benefits of private cloud. (Most public cloud providers have the scale and resources to provide robust security, so businesses that have doubts about their ability to manage their own security may be better served by public cloud solutions.) As long as a business isn’t complacent, though, the private cloud offers many advantages for security. Since private clouds are limited to specific physical machines, it’s easier to ensure physical security.

Types of private cloud

  • Virtual private cloud: This type is different from conventional private clouds because the resources in a virtual private cloud exist in a walled-off area on a public cloud instead of being hosted on-premises.
  • Hosted private cloud: This type of private cloud is hosted by a separate cloud service provider on-premises or in a data center, but the server is not shared with other organizations.
  • Managed private cloud: With this type of private cloud, a cloud service provider not only hosts a private cloud for an organization, but it also manages and monitors the day-to-day operations of the private cloud.
