Do you know the differences and benefits of the different cloud strategies?
3 Types of Cloud Computing
Cloud computing strategies is a must-have for most modern businesses looking to remain competitive in their respective industries. The correct cloud computing system can open up new opportunities for business development, productivity and growth and should be carefully considered by all levels of senior management. However before deciding which cloud computing strategy works best for you will need to gain an understanding of the types of service providers that you can work with. We’ll break these down for you in this blog.
If you use any of the following; Google Drive, Amazon Web Services, or One Drive you are already using a form of public cloud. These type of services provide cloud technology for all customers with users paying to use their share of infrastructure.
By using this option, your business will not need to worry about maintaining the technology and infrastructure. The providers take care of the servers and other critical systems that keep your business going.
Sometimes referred to as enterprise or internal cloud systems, private cloud systems run on an internal network. Your organisation owns the infrastructure, which can run on site or from a data centre.
Hybrid Cloud Solutions
Hybrid clouds are simply a mixture of public and private cloud computing options and aim to negate some of the disadvantages of private and public cloud, whilst retaining their advantages.
Hybrid clouds are extremely secure, however they can lead to complex computing infrastructure that can take more time to setup and manage in comparison to sticking to public or private cloud systems.
