It’s easy to see the advantages the cloud brings to businesses—scalability, easy access to data, lower costs—and this is true whether your business uses a public cloud or a private cloud.
The cloud offers so much to businesses right here in Charlotte, NC. Reverus has helped businesses like yours transition from traditional computing to public and private clouds, and they haven’t looked back. But what are the differences and advantages of each? And if you have yet to transition to the cloud, which is the most appropriate environment for your business? This blog will examine each.
Instead of in-house servers and infrastructure, a business pays a provider to rent space on the provider’s servers. This means the business doesn’t need to buy and maintain its own server computing equipment or dedicate space to it. This service is offered to any business on a scalable, pay-as-you-go basis. All the updates, equipment upgrades, and other associated maintenance lies with the provider.
Certain information is more sensitive, and when a business wants to avoid potential security issues with public cloud options, they turn to a private cloud. The drawback to this is that many of the cost-reducing benefits of the public cloud are lost when the infrastructure is owned and maintained by the company.
The new advantage to the company is increased security and control of the equipment that houses sensitive business information. The private cloud is a better option for businesses that have to maintain compliance to industry standards that define how and where they are to store sensitive data. Also, the company retains control over how this data is secured and what needs to happen when a disaster occurs and it must be recovered.
Most businesses, regardless of size, find themselves using a combination of the above options. Not all business applications need to be treated the same, so if some contain sensitive customer information such as credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, addresses, account information, or buying history, a unique cloud-based environment can be designed around these particular needs and requirements. A hybrid option provides the scalability and cost-saving advantages of the public cloud, while integrating seamlessly with information stored on private clouds, allowing your business to optimize for scale, performance, and cost.
