Techopedia explains Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC)

A virtual private data center can be thought of as the amalgamation of almost all the different cloud services available and provided as a single solution, forming a virtual data center powered by the cloud. In theory, a VPDC solution contains all the core elements to operate an enterprise-level data center.

A VPDC helps an organization avoid the massive capital operational costs incurred for an in-house data center, while maintaining privacy and control over their cloud data center through service level agreements. Generally this includes 99.99% uptime and segregation of their rented data center resources from other clients.
