Top Benefits of Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud and Public Cloud–2016
Private Cloud versus Public Cloud:
Public cloud is cheaper than Private Cloud, because they use split infra-structure which complements applications whose information is not private, exclusive or sensitive.
Private Cloud costs more, but there is a trade-off, that is at higher levels of security as well as higher SSL(Secure Socket Layer) and a TLS(Transport Layer Security) method.
This trade-off between the Private Cloud and Public Cloud depends on the business decision taken by the Cloud Buyer. In general, most companies use public cloud for tests, development, applications, email and customer relationship management(CRM). However, market research shows that companies also use public cloud for business processes such as human resources as well as for accounting purposes.
The Private Cloud environment consists of mission critical, highly sensitive applications, as well as heavy data analysis and data mining, including big data applications or examples of these applications which are run typically in a private cloud environment.
Using Private Cloud is also an interim step that larger enterprises choose to firstly adopt to give their employees a public like cloud experience in a very controlled environment. The Market Research study shows that over the next five years “Private Cloud Adoption” will reach 43% of all the companies that have opted into “The Cloud”. This is a significant trend to follow over the coming years.
The Valuable Hybrid Cloud
The reason here being that Hybrid Cloud provides the best of both worlds. Typically an enterprise starts with traffic in a private cloud environment, then bursts into the public cloud environment where there is a heavy load.
To describe this ability when most companies use the public cloud for extra on demand capacity and that is where the cloud bursting originates from.
These days the norm is to leverage both the private and the public cloud environments.
Additionally, companies with hybrid cloud architectures can leverage a private cloud uniquely for some applications, and public cloud for the rest of the applications.
Companies take the costs into consideration as well as security trade-offs. The owners get a choice when it comes to leverage the cloud. To make it clear, enterprises describe this type of set-up as a hybrid cloud because they leverage both types of infrastructures to support different types of usages.
Finally, hybrid cloud will become a very common architecture in the next few years and important to watch as it develops to understand the use cases and providers of these services.
One last point:
End user expectations, quality of service, security and availability of data will never change, no matter what environment the applications run out of, whether it is “The Cloud” or just the dedicated Server in the corner of the office.
