What's The Difference?
Cloud resources (servers & storage) are owned and maintained by a third-party provider and delivered over the internet. Examples of the “public cloud” include AWS and Microsoft Azure. All hardware, software, and supporting infrastructure is owned and managed by the provider. You share the same hardware, storage, and network devices with other organizations.
Private cloud means computing resources are used exclusively by you. The services and infrastructure are dedicated solely to your organization. This dedication of resources makes it easier to customize solutions that meet your unique requirements in support of your business-critical operations.
A hybrid cloud deployment CAN be the “best of both worlds”. Properly deployed, you can gain the advantages of both the private and public cloudscape. You might use the public cloud for high-volume needs or where immediate scalability is a factor while still maintaining critical, low-latency data and applications in your private cloud environment. A hybrid cloud can also become your worst nightmare if consideration to the strengths and weakness of each platform are not properly considered prior to deployment.
