Introducing the Three Types of Cloud Solutions

Introducing the Three Types of Cloud Solutions

Cloud computing is an ever-growing industry and it’s only going to grow more popular as time goes on. More businesses than ever have started to adopt the cloud in at least some capacity. Is your company one of the few that haven’t yet moved to the cloud? If so, you’ll want to at least consider it, as your business could gain considerable benefits from doing so.

Depending on the type of business you run, as well as its specific needs, the type of cloud you implement will vary in scope, size and build. There are typically three different types of the cloud: public, private, and hybrid. Each of them comes with their own specific strengths and weaknesses.

Public Cloud
The public cloud is meant to help businesses with a limited budget gain access to crucial elements of the cloud, including storage, access to applications or services and networking. Generally speaking, the public cloud is primarily used to provide entry-level cloud access to businesses of all kinds. Examples of the public cloud include services like Microsoft’s Office 365 suite, as well as Google’s G Suite, both of which provide productivity suites and storage to businesses through cloud distribution. What the public cloud offers in terms of efficiency and ease of setup can often make up for the lack of customisation that many businesses find with it.

Private Cloud
Private Clouds are generally more customised to suit the needs of your business, whereas public clouds are meant to be used more as a general solution. Private clouds are hosted on-site, managed by an in-house IT department and require more attention. Compared to the public cloud, private clouds are generally implemented by businesses that know specifically what they need and how they want it set up.

Hybrid Cloud
The hybrid cloud is considered to be somewhere in the middle of the public and private, affording small businesses the benefits of both with little drawback, if any at all. Often times, hybrid clouds are implemented for the purposes of having a customised infrastructure without all of the responsibilities of managing one. A managed service provider like Press Start Ltd can manage and maintain your cloud infrastructure on its own in-house network so that you don’t have to. To learn more, call us on 01638 603204.
