Things You Need to Know About the Private and Public Cloud Computing

by Jessica Kappor Project Manager
Have you planned to move all your organization’s process to cloud? If yes, you need to be aware of the infrastructure type you will be using. One has to decide about the hosting and distribution of applications and data. One has to choose between the private cloud computing and the public cloud computing options available. Thus, knowing about these two can help you in deciding which one is more suitable for your organization.

Private and Public Cloud Computing

The private cloud has an infrastructure to cater to the specific needs of only one company, whereas the public cloud is meant to meet the requirements of many organizations at one place.

The public cloud computing can make the data storage capacity and other applications available either to the multiple organizations. Whereas, in private cloud, the infrastructure is designed to provide the benefits to the user only, and in some cases, to the third party as well, when the user is willing to share some specific information with the third party.

The data of a particular company and its critical nature is the main deciding factor when it comes to choosing the type of cloud computing system to be used. In order to safeguard crucial data, companies are advised to use private cloud computing because it is considered more secure than public cloud computing.

Generally, companies with more vital data are likely to choose the private cloud infrastructure over the public one due to the level of security it provides.

There are a number of advantages of choosing private cloud computing over public cloud computing, a few are mentioned below:

Higher Security: The servers of private cloud are maintained internally by the organization itself, so there is a negligible risk of security breaches.

Flexibility: The private cloud system is more flexible as the organization can shift the work from one server to another, unlike the public cloud computing where it is mandatory to take the permission of the service provider if you require making any changes.

Public cloud computing requires less financial investment compared to the private cloud computing. So, choosing the one which meets all your requirements in the defined budget becomes an important task for organizations.
