Cloud is the delivery of on-demand computing resources, everything from applications to data centres, over the internet on a pay-for-use basis, allowing you to scale your requirements up or down quickly and easily to meet demand, and to only pay for what you use. The delivery of Cloud can be via Public, Private or a Hybrid Cloud solution.
Public clouds offer rapid access over a public network to affordable computing resources. With public cloud services, users don’t need to purchase hardware, software, or supporting infrastructure.
A private cloud is infrastructure operated solely for a single organisation, whether managed internally or by a third party, and hosted either internally or externally.
A hybrid cloud uses a private cloud foundation combined with the strategic integration and use of public cloud services. The reality is a private cloud can’t exist in isolation from the rest of a company’s IT resources and the public cloud. Most companies with private clouds will evolve to manage workloads across data centres, private clouds, and public clouds – thereby creating hybrid clouds.
