T1S Services - Cloud Definitions
What is Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud?
You will hear those three terms spoken about a lot by the bigger players in the market but what do they actual mean? What is the difference?
Public Cloud is the most common of the three being the first "cloud" type. An example of public cloud would be most web hosting providers where your website sits on a server alongside other websites, so same hardware multiple clients.
Private Cloud can be the most expensive cloud solution as all the hardware is client specific, its basically moving your IT network to the cloud where you and you alone can access it. There maybe one or two elements that maybe shared such as the main firewall that is used to connect to the hardware, core switches and load balancers.
Hybrid Cloud is where we provide a shared public access route to private servers. A good example for this type is software as a service (SaaS) where the application servers could be private but perhaps the database is shared. Its really down to the client requirements as to which services are public and which is private.
