A local cloud, also known as Local Cloud as a Service (LCaaS), is a dedicated cloud offering that belongs to a single organization and is run on-site, within the organization's premises. A local cloud is provisioned and managed by a third-party cloud provider, such as AWS, Microsoft, Google, and Oracle. The LCaaS service typically includes both infrastructure and software maintenance.
