Business owners use three types of cloud services to store their data and provide them with services: public, private and hybrid.
Public Cloud: A public cloud service is built on an external platform run by a cloud-service provider. With this off-site cloud service, users get their own cloud within a shared infrastructure. The provider offers everything from system resources to the security and maintenance of your cloud system. Since it is managed by an outside company specializing in cloud services for a large range of customers, a public cloud system is great for organizations that want more elasticity, cost-effectiveness and the latest technology.
Private Cloud: A private cloud service is a cloud platform built within your own walls on your own hardware and software. Since a private cloud is managed by your own internal IT team, it is ideal for businesses that want exclusive access, more flexibility and greater control over their cloud. To use a private cloud service, however, organizations build their own data centers, making it a costlier cloud option.
Hybrid Cloud: A hybrid cloud service employs both private and public clouds. In a hybrid cloud system, an organization’s own IT team manages part of the cloud in-house and the rest off-site. For instance, a hybrid cloud system is perfect for an organization that wants to manage business related data (such as customer files) in-house but wants to store less-sensitive information with a third party. Hybrid cloud systems are used by all types of organizations but are 46 percent more likely to be used by larger organizations with more than 1,000 employees, according to the research.
Cloud computing is used by everyone from individuals to private and public organizations, including educational systems and governments. In business, cloud systems are used by organizations of all shapes and sizes, from small businesses to multinational corporations.
For small and midsize businesses (SMBs), the benefits of cloud computing are endless. Cloud computing saves businesses time and money by boosting productivity, improving collaboration and promoting innovation. Cloud hosting facilitates all types of information-sharing, such as email services, application hosting, Web-based phone systems, data storage and more.
Businesses use cloud computing to access information anywhere using any compatible device. Unlike storing information on your computer or a server in your office, cloud computing stores data on the Internet. It works by making information available from a central Web-based hub that gives anyone with proper credentials access from any location with an Internet connection.
Cloud computing also syncs data for all devices connected to the cloud, keeping them updated with real-time information. In the cloud environment, users can access all types of files, use applications as though they were in the office, and even collaborate remotely while working on the same project or presentation on their device as someone on the other side of the globe. Even if you're away from work or your office server is inaccessible, data in the cloud is always up-to-date and always available wherever, whenever.
Cloud-computing services can range from data storage to functional programs, including accounting, customer-service tools and remote desktop hosting.
According to studies, 54 percent of organizations use cloud computing. Of these organizations, 74 percent use some combination of different types of clouds, with 40-50 percent of them using multiple services of the same type of cloud.
