According to your project, you may have to choose between a Public Cloud or a Private Cloud, or a combination of the two (a Hybrid Cloud). But what is the difference between public and private?
What is Public Cloud ?
Public Cloud is a flexible, open system which is fully managed by SafeBrands. Several users (individuals and companies) can access it via the internet.
With the Public Cloud, multiple entities share the same IT resources. The main infrastructure is shared between several companies, but the data and application usage are logically separated so that only authorised users have access to them. Consequently, the Public Cloud is far more than a hosting service or a new technology – it is a brand new model for the delivery of IT services. It offers flexibility and freedom – the user can access the service at any time and for the time that they need, and is billed based on this access. The Public Cloud offers a real plethora of resources, including operating and development tools, management software, application resources etc.
What is Private Cloud ?
Private Cloud is a private system whose management is shared between SafeBrands and the user. Private Cloud (or internal or company cloud) services refers to IT infrastructure hosted on a private platform. This infrastructure is dedicated to the company alone.
The main difference to the Public Cloud is that the Private Cloud is dedicated to the client, who has more control over the infrastructure, and benefits from extensibility, flexibility and improved productivity. The client is also empowered to manage its own data security.
