The two main cloud computing models available to organisations today are the public and private cloud.
The public cloud model provides organisations with IT resources as a service via the internet. This model operates in a standardised, self-service way where the user pays depending on the amount that is used. The public cloud is very quick and effective when it comes to standard infrastructure, and it is competitively priced. However, with this model there are concerns that many organisations have very little knowledge in regards to where their data is actually being stored.
For organisations that may have compliance and legal implications, the geographic location of data can often prove to be a challenge. Whether or not you have control over your data is an important consideration for organisations trying to choose between these two models. If greater sovereignty is required, the private cloud model is often chosen instead. When you make use of a private cloud, data is stored on premises or co-located in a data centre, as this provides you with maximum control over both your data and business applications.
A “one-size fits all” approach simply doesn’t work with this type of system, and organisations need to be able to make a choice in regards to how they combine the most appropriate mix of computing models to meet their specific requirements.
As a leader within your business, it is important to make sure you choose a system that meets your specific requirements.
