Private Cloud Vs Public Cloud Computing: Pros & Cons!

by James Burns CEO
CLOUD is the silver bullet of all the tech innovations!

Cloud technology, cloud computing, cloud services, and cloud solutions are the terms that pass our hearing senses every day. While some people understand these, most don't even know the meaning.

In today's competitive, passionate, and digital business world, companies willingly use popular business solutions to grow miles on the internet hassle-free.

Cloud Tech/Cloud Computing is the best IT business solution that easily handles IT infra, business tasks, and operations without any burden. That's why we hear new launches of cloud-based services and applications each day.

"Cloud means MORE Flexibility, Productivity, & Scalability in Your Digital Business!"

But, how cloud do it? Why need cloud in business? Is cloud publicly available for all? Can we use the cloud offline? What's the future of the cloud?

Such are the questions awaiting easy responses!

So, keep your pace, peace of mind with me, and know -

What is Cloud Computing?

In the current digital business era, data is most important for a successful business. If the digital data increases, the customer base increases; thus, increasing the leads and increased customer conversion.

"Data is invincible, and the need for data collection and storage is critical. To store data, we need servers."

That's when the Cloud comes! Made up of several servers from different data centers, Cloud contains software, applications, databases, and stores data in its server that users access via their devices and the internet.

"Mainly there are three types of cloud: Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud."

CLOUD COMPUTING refers to delivering computational services including servers, storage, networking, database, software, applications, and more via cloud while offering innovative, flexible resources to run a business efficiently and meet the required business changes.

As the data storage and computing happen on the servers, the cloud enables you to access all your files and applications from any device. You don't need to save your data, particularly on the device.

"Cloud computing services are safe, secure, highly productive, reliable, easy-to-maintain, fast-performing, globally scalable, easy data backup, cost-efficient, and low-cost investment!"

Why Would You Need Cloud Computing?

It is the 21st century's mainstream technology that got adopted fastly with the increasing number of devices for business purposes and individual usage.

It eliminates the need to manage physical servers. Now organizations don't have to worry. Everything is automatic. If your servers go down, cloud servers are always available!

From a business point of view, you want a 24Hr presence of your online business, websites, digital stores, etc. From a user point of view, you want to access data from anywhere, anytime.

"According to our research, the global cloud computing market can cross the US $1000 billion by the end of 2026. More than 60% of companies and millions of individuals use up-to-date cloud computing services."

If you are new and want to use it, visit AWS (Amazon Web Services), Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Alibaba, and Cloudflare. They are the major key players in the cloud industry.

What are the Types of Cloud Computing?

Most of the cloud computing services divide into four categories, i.e., SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service), IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), FaaS (Function-as-a-Service, aka, Serverless Computing).

These are the cloud service models based on three types of cloud, i.e., public, private, and hybrid!

In Public cloud computing, the computing resources like servers and storage are owned, operated, and maintained by a third-party cloud service provider. Users manage accounts and access their services and via a web browser.

On the other hand, when a business or organization uses cloud computing resources exclusively, it means they are using Private cloud computing on a private network.

Finally, the combination of private and public cloud is called Hybrid cloud. It gives better business flexibility, deployment, security, compliance, and optimize infrastructure.

Differences Between Private and Public Cloud!

Both public and private clouds offer the best hosting solutions but differ in infrastructure, usage, security, scalability, cost, and maintenance. Below is the table that describes all for you!

Public Cloud Computing

Performance -  More users, performance level reduces
Security - Basic security and compliant options
Infrastructure - Multi-user infrastructure shared network
Scalability - It is scalable but depends on your agreement with the cloud service provider
Best Usage - Startups, SMBs, and SMEs
Business Requirements - Low scale cloud usage
Support & Maintenance - Takes time, 2 - 3 days
Cost - Affordable as resources are shared

Private Cloud Computing

Performance -  Dedicated servers, High performance
Security - Isolated network, enhanced security & data protection
Infrastructure - Dedicated network & infra, no sharing with anyone
Scalability - It is managed in-house by your technical team, gives better control and storage
Best Usage - Big organizations and companies, global corporations
Business Requirements - High scale cloud usage
Support & Maintenance - Instant within 24Hrs
Cost - Costly as resources are dedicated

You will have to choose one before subscribing to any cloud services. To make a perfect decision, I recommend you to carefully understand all the benefits of both cloud computing types and research well.

Which is Better for Business?

I hope you already realize how beneficial cloud computing can be to your business. But, if you still don't understand its benefits, then here are some of them;

"Top Benefits: Effective backup, Scalable data storage, Instant computing power, Access to all software & applications, Increased automation & productivity, Communication flexibility, Improve customer operations, 24Hr web presence, Expand DevOps, Reduce IT demands, and Save infrastructure costs."

Though the first cloud computing service was a decade old, it brought a revolution. Today, global corporations, startups, and government agencies provide the best possible cloud services between Public cloud & Private cloud.

If I am correct with my every explanation above, then you too will come to the same conclusion -

  • MNCs, big corporations, businesses, and organizations should use the Private Cloud.
  • Startups, small companies, SMBs, and SMEs should use the Public Cloud.

How Much Cloud Computing Can Cost You?

Before I discuss the cost, it is important to tell you major cloud computing drawbacks. Though it can have hundreds of benefits, tons of service providers, two drawbacks remain prominent.

First is the Security! Cyberattacks are continuously rising. No business is safe. As a result, individuals refrain from becoming a part of the cloud's public network.

But, it is easy to eliminate this drawback, if we can find reputed cloud service providers. There comes the second drawback, Awareness!

For many the cloud computing is still new; some don't even know about it. Even the employees in IT companies don't know well about the cloud. The lack of awareness stops people from using the cloud and finding the best cloud hosting providers.

Due to this, the cost of cloud computing services varies in the IT industry. The pricing depends on the industry and its tech support. If fewer people know about the cloud, eventually, prices will be high!

Here comes your responsibility -

You can be the savior! Research more and keep educating yourself on the cloud. Share this article everywhere possible and spread awareness on Cloud computing: Public cloud v/s Private cloud!
