Private, Public Community and Hybrid Clouds Explained

Posted by Stephanie Aldrich on March 24, 2016

Cloud deployment models define the implementation of the cloud infrastructure within an organization. They are divided into four broad categories namely Private cloud, Public cloud, Community cloud and Hybrid cloud. Based on the needs of an organization, these implementations can help save capital cost and also eliminate the operating cost of these cloud infrastructures. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) define the framework of these models. The model defines the access to cloud infrastructure, the extent of which is defined by the service contract and the target audience of the cloud.
