WHAT IS THE RIGHT TYPE OF CLOUD SERVICE FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
Moving to the cloud isn't an all or nothing deal. Thereís no need to rip out your existing servers, think of hybrid clouds. The decision is usually governed by your internal SLAs, security, and cost considerations. There are three main types of cloud to choose from - public, private, and hybrid. Each one comes with its own pros and cons.
- Public cloud
The public cloud is an off-premise multi-tenant solution. It is easy to use and access from internet-connected devices. Users do not have to jump many hurdles to access the services. Public clouds are highly flexible allowing you to easily add or drop capacity. This elasticity also contributes to its cost-effectiveness as they usually operate a pay-as-you-go model. Public clouds can suffer from outages, may be more susceptible to hacks, and are less secure.
- Private cloud
Private cloud services arenít shared and are developed specifically for your company. These can be maintained onsite or in a privately hosted data center. This gives you greater control over your cloud infrastructure and stored data. In addition, private clouds have stronger SLAs, hence increased reliability. While the cost of private clouds is higher, it is much more secure than public clouds.
- Hybrid cloud
Hybrid cloud means two or more clouds connected to support load balancing between private in-house resources and virtualized resources in the public cloud. It allows you to create an ideal configuration, balancing cost, and security. You get the advantage of the cost-effectiveness of the public cloud and enjoy the security of the private cloud.
