In business, if you need 1 server, 2 servers or 12 or 20 servers for your data center, storage, application hosting, you can do it just by sign up for the services, without purchasing and installation of the server on your premises. Through cloud computing, you will get the wide variety of features to choose for your data center such as dedicated resources, instant upgrades, autoscaling storage capacity, high-speed networks etc.
Private cloud is like an external hard disk, pen drive. But the difference is just that private cloud storage is provided by the third party, and the server(hard disk) is located on the remote place, you never know where. You can use private cloud and private infrastructures that are located on the remote location. Virtual cloud is remotely located it can benefit you in times of disaster, your data will be safe and secure.
