Understanding The Different Types Of Cloud Computing

By



Cloud computing has become the norm in the tech world. The number of businesses and individuals who are relying on cloud computing is growing. However, did you know that not all clouds are for everyone? Did you even know that there are different types of clouds? For instance, you may be playing games over the cloud on lottery-bonus-code.com without even knowing!

If you are wondering what the cloud is, this article will help you understand the different types of cloud computing.

There are four types of cloud computing based on the location that the cloud(web) is providing.  They include

  1. Public cloud
  2. Private cloud
  3. Hybrid cloud
  4. Community cloud

#1. Public Cloud

A third party user offers a public cloud, and it is multi-tenant; thus, the users share the resources. It can provide resources such as virtual machines which are available to clients remotely.  It has several benefits such as scalability, reduces costs of operation, and customers can share resources. Amazon Web Services and Google App Engine are examples of public clouds.

#2. Private cloud

 A private cloud is different from a public cloud in that the infrastructure serves only one organization. The cloud is only accessible by a specific company. The cloud can be based physically on the enterprise data center. On the other hand, a company can hire a third-party provider to host the cloud. A private cloud is advantageous because of scalability, flexibility, and a company reduces cost since it will pay only for the services it requires. However, the company will bear all the maintenance, deposition, and acquisition costs.

#3. Hybrid cloud.

A hybrid cloud is an integration of both public and private cloud. In this case, an enterprise can host the critical data servers on its own while the secondary information can be hosted on a public cloud.  The cloud is beneficial because a company can enjoy the benefits of the two clouds.  For instance, it gives an enterprise more flexibility, scalability, security, and integration of existing infrastructures.

#4. Community Cloud.

A community cloud is one which is operated by a specific group which shares the same goals. A third party can also manage the cloud. Also, It is designed for enterprises which have a partnership or a  joint project. These communities work together to achieve their goals and objectives.

You decide what type of cloud user you are. More often than not, you would be using cloud as a user and separately, for your business. As a business, you will probably want to go in for the hybrid cloud model, simply because of the increased flexibility it offers.
