There are three types of Cloud Computing: Private, Public, and Hybrid Cloud. These three types of Cloud have its own characteristics and benefits. Every company can heavily rely on one of them which of course it will depend on their needs. They also have vital roles to help the company to grow. 

Before choosing which types of Cloud Computing, you should be aware of a few things to consider. One of them is to understand the difference between these three types of Cloud Computing.

The difference between Private, Public, and Hybrid Cloud

In order not to be wrong in choosing the type of Cloud Computing, there are several things that you must understand first. The following is a brief explanation of Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud.

1. Private Cloud

Private Cloud is a Cloud solution that cannot be exposed or accessed by the public. In other words, this kind of Cloud is meant for just one user or company. Only a company that subscribed to the solution has access to and control of the overall data. Private Cloud can be tailored to the need and security of your business. 

The Data center is physically located at your location, but the service provider can have access to host. However, the private network, hardware, and software are still in your control. Due to its single lease type, where there is only data from one company that will be stored in the Cloud, the costs that companies will incur tend to be more expensive.

A company will choose this kind of Cloud solution only if they require strong control and security over their IT workloads and the underlying infrastructure. This is because the resources will not leak to other parties, so the level of control and privacy will be higher.

2. Public Cloud

Opposite the Private Cloud, the Public Cloud is a Cloud solution that anyone can access and use via the Internet network. This Cloud is quite popular because it offers a wide range of options and computing resources to meet the needs of companies.

Because it is aimed at the public, the service provider will manage, develop, and is responsible for everything. Therefore, you do not need a lot of money to buy the hardware or software because you only pay for the services you use.

A company will choose Public Cloud if their need for Cloud Computing can be foreseen in advance, for example, communication service for the number of specific users.


3. Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid Cloud is a Cloud solution with a combination of Private dan Public Cloud. This concoction will give you flexibility and allow you to make the most of your infrastructure funds.

Hybrid Cloud is running based on its user’s needs. If the company runs its business on the Private Cloud, it can only have access to its own data. On the other hand, if the company running on Public Cloud, its data can be accessed by anyone within the same network.

Because it is a combination of two opposing Clouds, the data stored in the Public Cloud is usually Multitenancy, which means that data from several companies will be stored in a shared environment. Meanwhile, the data stored in the Private Cloud will remain confidential between companies.

Companies should use Hybrid Cloud if they want to increase the security of existing Cloud solutions such as SaaS offerings that must be delivered over a secure private network.
