Cloud Computing and Types of Deployment Model
What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is the provision of various computing services, including software, servers, networking, storage, database, intelligence, and analytics - over the Internet ("the cloud") to provide flexible resources, faster innovations, and good economies. To simply say, cloud computing is the delivery of on-demand IT services through Internet.
Cloud computing is one of the trending IT technologies that define several technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and Virtual Reality/ Augmented Reality (VR/AR). Over the past decade, cloud technology has become a very important and huge component in the IT world. Depending on their specific requirements, businesses can choose where, when, and how they use cloud computing to ensure an efficient and reliable IT solution.
Who Uses the Cloud Computing Technology?
Companies of all sizes in the industry – from software and IT, banking and insurance, manufacturing and retail, media and entertainment, telecommunications to millennial startups and other professional services have started leveraging cloud computing services from the top cloud computing service providers in India and the USA like ‘Quadrant Technologies LLC’.
Powerful analytics tools, customer relationship management, enterprise resource management, system infrastructure software, content and collaborative applications, unlimited storage, data management and delivery applications are all widely used features of the cloud. ‘Cloud Service Providers’ (CSPs) will offer cloud computing services and solutions to the various industries.
Usually, cloud computing technology is described in one of two ways, either based on the service offering by cloud or the deployment model.
Types of Cloud Deployment Model:
- Community cloud
#1 Public Cloud:
Public cloud service is delivered on the network for only public use. It completely depends on the share cost model for all customers or in the form of a licensing policy like payment to the customer. Public cloud is ideal for companies with growing and volatile demand. It is a pioneer with enterprises of all sizes for storing their sensitive data, web mails, and web applications.
Some of the popular public cloud deployment models are Microsoft Azure, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), IBM Cloud, Salesforce Hero, Google App Engine, etc.
Database migration services is a complex, multiphase process that includes assessment, database schema conversion, script conversion, data migration, functional testing, performance tuning, and many other steps.
- Highly Scalable
- Place independence
- Low price
- Poor Customizable
- Less Secured
#2 Private Cloud:
Private cloud means that only one organization/one customer uses the cloud infrastructure (network). Although it is remote, it will not be shared with others. The private cloud also offers the same advantages as the public but uses committed private hardware, which provides greater security. The private cloud deployment model is ideal for companies with high-security requirements, high availability requirements and high maintenance demands.
- Highly secure and private
- Control Oriented
- Poor scalability
- High cost
#3 Hybrid Cloud:
Hybrid Cloud includes both private cloud and public cloud features. Hybrid cloud enables to share data and applications between private and public cloud environments. Companies use the hybrid cloud when they need more scalability for on-premises infrastructure, so they use scalability in the public cloud to meet volatile business demands. Companies can store their sensitive data in their private cloud while gaining the power of the public cloud.
- Highly Scalable
- Company's security compliance
- Complex networking problem
#4 Community cloud:
Community cloud is a mutually shared deployment model between companies belonging to a particular community such as government agencies, banks, or any commercial entities. Community members usually share issues such as security, privacy, and performance. Community clouds are internally hosted and managed by third party vendors.
- Ease of data sharing and collaboration
- Improved security and reliability
- High cost compared to public cloud
- It is not yet widespread
- Sharing of fixed storage capacity
