We’ve all used or heard about the cloud; we know it allows us to store and access data and programs over the Internet instead of our computer’s hard drive.
The term ‘cloud’ is just a metaphor from the Internet. It goes back to the days of flowcharts and presentations that depicted the giant Internet server infrastructure as nothing more than a white, bloated cluster, accepting connections and delivering information while it floats.
There are three types of clouds: Private, public, and a hybrid between the two. A private cloud enables the user to their own infrastructure or site. It is ideal for businesses that deal with private data such as bank accounts or want to have privacy within the network. The public cloud, on the other hand, is very similar to how a power company provides its service as a utility, and the hybrid cloud combines features of both private and public clouds.
With a public cloud, all hardware, software, and other components of the underlying infrastructure are owned and managed by the cloud provider. In a public cloud, you share the same hardware, storage, and network devices with other organizations or “tenants” of the cloud. You access the services and manage your account through a web browser.
