Microsoft Private Cloud?

Microsoft Private Cloud?
Microsoft private cloud relies on System Center components to create and use Private Clouds. You can use these technologies to offer traditional IaaS services, such as VMs on demand. Also provides support for deploying multi-tier applications, monitoring and updating applications, and automation.
Cloud computing allows self-service access to an elastic pool of IT resources.It’s important to realize that a private cloud isn’t just a technology change; it also requires new attitudes and behaviors. The benefits can be significant.
