I looked at a few places and can’t find a clear answer.
1) Is an on-premise data center infrastructure considered as Private Cloud ?
2) Setting up a dedicated instance of Azure or AWS or GCP on customer datacenter is considered as Private Cloud?
Could you answer Malcolm’s clarifying questions please, so we can get the correct answer for you?
Definition – What does Private Cloud mean?
Private cloud refers to a model of cloud computing where IT services are provisioned over private IT infrastructure for the dedicated use of a single organization. A private cloud is usually managed via internal resources.
The terms private cloud and virtual private cloud (VPC) are often used interchangeably. Technically speaking, a VPC is a private cloud using a third-party cloud provider’s infrastructure, while a private cloud is implemented over internal infrastructure.
Private clouds may also be referred to as enterprise clouds.
I believe in the context of this course a Private Cloud is a "container" you put Azure resources in to separate them onto another network. It’s an organizational principle that supports good security.
