Cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the internet instead of a computer’s hard drive. Examples of cloud services are file storage and backup, web-based email, and project management tools.
The purpose of cloud services is to provide users with easy, scalable access to computing resources and IT services. Similar to all IT solutions, the cloud service infrastructure will involve the hardware and software components. With the differentiated type of cloud services, (Public Cloud / Private Cloud / Hybrid Cloud), it can be difficult for an organization to decide on which would be best suited for their business.
Public Cloud Services
Public cloud services are made available to numerous customers over the web. Examples of public cloud-based services will be SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS. Benefits of using a public cloud service is that resources can be shared, hence allowing for more capabilities for employees.
Private Cloud Services
Private cloud services generally does not allow corporate users or subscribers to have access. It will only allow access to the organization’s own internal infrastructure. This means that the platform and service will only serve one company alone, with data not accessible to external users. Benefits of using a private cloud service is the high security.
Hybrid Cloud Services
A hybrid cloud service will consist of an combination of both public and private cloud services. This is often used by businesses that need to store sensitive data in the private cloud, but at the same time, allow employees to access resources in the public cloud for day-to-day collaboration.
Benefits of Cloud Services
- Cost saving
The rise in Cloud adoption is largely due to its cost model where you pay for what you use. This model helps businesses lower their risk and upfront costs while having the flexibility to scale up whenever necessary.
With traditional data center responsibilities managed by the Cloud provider, it is important to have Cloud Support for your business to maximize the resources and manage accordingly.
