Public, Private, and Hybrid Clouds
What exactly is cloud computing? In a nutshell cloud computing comes into focus when you think about what IT always needs: a way to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software.
For small and medium-sized businesses seeking better collaboration; flexibility, control, and ways to increase cost-effectiveness and technology ROI see the cloud as a very attractive IT service model.
There are three cloud computing models available today: private, public, and hybrid/shared clouds. Which model you leverage can depend on many different aspects of your environment such as; the amount of (growing) data, current workloads, and the level of security, availability and control you require.
What is a Private Cloud?
For businesses that require increased flexibility due to requirements such as: security, compliance, and the need for total control over mission-critical applications, find that investing in a private cloud solution provides the greatest security and protection, customization, and scalability for their networks – and ultimately their businesses.
A private cloud is an cloud-computing model that is designed and customized to serve a single organization. All of your data, applications and resources are stored in their own isolated container and never leave your network.
What is a Hybrid Cloud?
A hybrid cloud is a composition of two or more clouds. This computing option allows companies to implement a strategy that puts select workloads in the public cloud while keeping others in-house and more secure.
Many businesses are turning to hybrid cloud solutions to reduce costs and enable more scalable and flexible business processes.
What is a Public Cloud?
Public cloud computing is a more traditional model where all of your applications, storage, and data live/run on the same shared public pool of resources – and are provided “as a service” over the internet. Public clouds almost always means that your data and applications are hosted on the same server as many other businesses just like yours, which ultimately results in you having little or even no control of your data and environment on a whole.
Typically smaller organizations that want to reduce costs and have the greatest level of efficiency in shared resources chose the public cloud model.
