While private cloud can be enticing, there are still roadblocks. Sometimes it's money. How many organizations will drop a quarter of a million dollars for a private cloud system? Even if private cloud can cut IT spending , that's a huge up-front investment at a time when IT spending remains low.
Some concerns are focused on IT. Organizations have noted that application delivery in the cloud can be technically difficult. Merging cloud and in-house processes is rarely simple, and some work is necessary to enable the kind of automation and orchestration features that make private cloud something special. IT shops will probably need to turn to cloud-oriented third-party tools.
