A Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a virtual network dedicated to a user's cloud account. It allows users to manage their own cloud environment, including selecting their own IP address range, creating subnets, and configuring route tables and network gateways.
A VPC works by providing a separate section of the cloud where resources can be launched in a virtual network defined by the user.
A company, DataCorp, uses a VPC to host its sensitive data on the cloud. The VPC provides an isolated environment where DataCorp can control access to resources, ensuring that only authorized personnel can access the sensitive data.
A type of cloud computing that delivers similar advantages to public cloud, including scalability and self-service, but through a proprietary architecture dedicated to a single organization.
A type of computing in which a service provider makes resources available to the public via the internet.
