Three Major Types Of Enterprise Cloud Models

Cloud computing is simply defined as a term that is used to describe the evolution of multiple of activities in the IT industry from a product to the utility service world. Moreover, with the increasing popularity of cloud computing you would also witness the degradation of traditional IT infrastructure, which gradually is moving up to clouds. Cloud based solutions are becoming more and more popular along with which various enterprise businesses are also catching up. Enterprise cloud computing is a comprehensive solution for organizations that enable IT to be delivered as a service. Whether software and hardware or storage and networking, almost all the computing resources are provided rapidly to the end users as per their specific requirements. The main benefit of such solutions is that they possess the ability to be scaled up or down, which further helps the users to get the resources that they require and pay only for what they use. Enterprise can usually leverage three major types of cloud models. Private cloud this is a kind of technology initiative that offers hosted services to only a limited number of people. Those organizations that prefer to run things in-house can consider private clouds, which are simply a hardware package that is bundled together with intelligent software, which can help them to request resources and can be further getting those resources allocated rapidly. This would also help the companies as they would get the ability to scale the resources up and down as needed at any point of time and also gain time-to market benefits with ceding control, recurring cost or any kind of security to the service provider. Public Cloud this kind of cloud service relies on cloud services by a third party provider, which exist beyond the company firewall as they take complete responsibility for managing as well as securing the entire infrastructure of an organization. In such kind of set up, the cloud provider does all the installation, provisioning, maintenance and management of the software application data center infrastructure. Hybrid Cloud this is the third major category and is a combination of private and public clouds. In this kind of model, an organization might make use of public cloud service for general computing, but at the same time store all the customer data within its own data provider, which is a private cloud. All the management responsibilities are split between the public and the enterprise cloud provider , in which the organization manages or provides certain resources in-house and get others provided externally.
