Public Cloud Services
Public Cloud Computing Services are provider-based solutions that offer a standard cloud-computing model that makes associated resources, applications, and data available via the Internet. While Amazon’s EC2 product is perhaps one of the more widely known public cloud solutions, many other alternatives exist with a variety of pricing plans charged to the organization on a pay-as-you-go basis. Furthermore, all public cloud providers offer an easily scalable product that can grow and expand along with the business demands of the organization.
When companies transition from a strictly on-premises environment to one that is cloud-based, they enjoy the added flexibility of immediate access to company software, applications, and information from any location around the world with an Internet connection. Managing access to the public cloud services can be controlled easily and efficiently through the use of authentication codes and encrypted password technologies. Organizations can also grant unfiltered access to company products and services if they choose.
Due to the underlying, shared infrastructure, public cloud providers offer the ability to optimize the size of virtual machines in terms of computational memory, power, and storage capacities. Unlike on-site solutions, upgrading cloud-based storage takes just a few clicks of the mouse. Companies can save time and money by eliminating the need to purchase, install, and configure expensive servers. Also, reducing the number of IT responsibilities related to server and storage management can help too. By transitioning to public cloud solutions, administrators simply decide which data needs to transition to the cloud, while keeping track of all employee-related password information.
Organizations also benefit greatly from the ease and reliability of more efficient cloud-based backup systems. On-site servers and storage solutions are always susceptible to power outages, natural disasters, and downtime due to replacement or maintenance issues. Public cloud solutions are always readily available, as long as the end user has access to an Internet connection. As business continuity becomes more of a concern for organizations across all industries and sectors, public cloud providers offer tremendous benefits regarding the innovation, implementation, and cost-efficiency of disaster recovery plans. Public Cloud Services are also known as Cloud Computing Services, Cloud Hosting, Cloud Storage, Shared Cloud, IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, or Cloud Platforms.
