Cloud computing used to be the next big thing in business technology and IT solutions. Now it is THE thing. In order to decide which kind of cloud computing platform suits your business best, you first need to understand the differences of available cloud based options.

Public Cloud

A public cloud is exactly that: Public. It means that the services and infrastructure are provided over the internet and therefore off-site. Whilst it is a great tool to increase efficiency of shared resources, it is also the most prone to security and safety issues.

Understanding the difference between Private, Public and Hybrid Clouds

Private Cloud

As part of a private cloud solution, services and infrastructure are maintained in-house on a private network. Whilst this is the most secure and save option, it also includes greater costs, as you still have to buy and maintain a software package and the necessary infrastructure. As a result, the cost saving benefits of transferring data to a cloud based platform are diminished.

Hybrid Cloud

Within a Hybrid Cloud, you can pick and choose whether you want to use the public or private cloud to store your data. It gives you the freedom to decide for each aspect of your business individually which environment it is best operated in.
