Cloud Deployment Models

Cloud Deployment Models


Cloud computing has changed the way we use technology and how companies do business. The cloud is a network of remote servers hosted by a third party that provides access through the internet. This model allows users to store files or share them with other users and also allows companies to host their applications, websites or data on these servers so that they can be accessed anytime from anywhere in the world.

Cloud Deployment Models

Private Cloud

Private clouds are a great fit for companies that have their own IT staff and are looking to use cloud computing to increase efficiency. A private cloud provides a way for companies to control their own IT infrastructure and security, but still take advantage of the benefits of public cloud technology.

Public Cloud

Public cloud is a pool of shared resources and services that are delivered over the Internet. It’s owned, operated and maintained by a third party. You can access it via any device with an Internet connection.

Public cloud providers offer several services including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).

Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud is a combination of two or more clouds, and it’s one of the most common deployment models for organizations that want to improve their IT infrastructure. Hybrid cloud can be public, private and/or community-based. A hybrid model will allow you to extend the capabilities of your organization by allowing you to use multiple providers within the same environment.

Hybrid models are often used by large enterprises because they offer greater flexibility than other types of deployments do–and they’re also less expensive than dedicated solutions (in many cases). This makes sense when you consider how much money companies spend on their own data centers every year: In fact, according to Gartner research published in 2017*, global spending on traditional public cloud services will reach $204 billion this year alone!

Choose the right one for your business.

When you’re looking to choose the right cloud deployment model for your business, it’s important to keep in mind that there are many different ways to go about it. The right choice depends on what kind of data you want to store, how much space is available on-premises and how much money you want to spend.

The first step is determining whether or not your company needs its own servers at all. This can be difficult when looking at the big picture because most businesses have several different departments with their own needs–but if one department has no need for its own hardware (or even its own network), then why should another? If this sounds like something that could apply to your situation, consider using a public cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) instead of building out infrastructure yourself.


Whether you’re looking to deploy your first cloud application or migrate your entire IT infrastructure, it’s important to understand the pros and cons of each model. It can be overwhelming with all of the options out there, so we hope this article helped clarify some things for you!
