A virtual private cloud is a form of private cloud that comprised of a distinct and secure cloud based environment in which a particular client can operate. It is a hybrid model of cloud computing under which cloud solution is provided within a public cloud provider’s infrastructure.
VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) is a part of cloud service in which a public cloud hosting provider isolates a specific allocation of their public cloud infrastructure for private use. The complete infrastructure of VPC is managed by public cloud vendor; however,the resources allotted to a VPC are not shared with any other.
VPC s were introduced specifically for those users interested in taking the benefits of cloud computing,but have some concerns overcloud such as privacy, security and the loss of control over proprietary data. To respond the customer requirement, most public cloud vendors developed a VPC offering a part of vendor public infrastructure,but ensuring dedicated cloud servers,cloud storage, virtual networks, and private ID & passwords, reserved for a VPC customer.
