Head in The Clouds – Understanding the Different Types of Cloud

Cloud computing solutions are complex. It’s difficult to know which solution is a good fit for your specific business needs. Once you understand the key advantages, offerings, and challenges of each solution, you can focus on selecting the best fit and determine what cloud deployment option is right for your business.

Here’s an overview of the different types of cloud to help you make the decision:

Public Cloud

Public clouds are the most common way of deploying cloud computing. The public cloud is a model where your data is stored off-site on a shared server managed and maintained by the service provider. This is a single service that is offered to many customers at the same time. With a public cloud, the support and infrastructure are owned by the company that provides the cloud services, meaning that the provider of a public cloud service determines the conditions of this service. One important benefit of the public cloud is the ability to rapidly scale a service. A disadvantage of the public cloud is the fact that it’s public.

At ColoHouse our public cloud is the perfect complement to your IT infrastructure. Our partners (Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure) offer world-class reliability and access world-wide.

Private Cloud

Private cloud refers to a model of cloud computing in which computing resources are rented by a single client or company and dedicated to the needs and goals of one business. Businesses can customize the control and maintenance of their service, allowing to tailor your infrastructure to meet your business needs and to suit any security or infrastructure requirements you may have. The downside is that customization is much more expensive than standard software in a public cloud.

At ColoHouse our private cloud provides the security you need for peace of mind with the added benefit of speed and flexibility. You are in full control of your cloud.

Hybrid Cloud 

A hybrid cloud is a combination of the public and private cloud. The advantage of the hybrid cloud model is that it allows workloads and data to move between private and public clouds in a flexible way allowing businesses greater flexibility and more options for data deployment and use.

Options are endless with our hybrid cloud solutions. Create any combination of public or private cloud solutions to fit your business and budget.
