Choosing the right type of cloud depends on the needs of your organization. Learn how security, control, customization, elasticity and cost determine what kind of cloud best fits your business. Public clouds are virtualized, multi-tenant IT infrastructures maintained by a third party and are a great choice for elastic applications that scale up and down according to demand. Private clouds can be on-premises or off-site, but the primary distinguishing characteristic is that they are single tenant clouds that can be highly customized and controlled. Hybrid cloud offers the best of both worlds. Many organizations find that the right choice for their application workloads is actually multiple clouds. By using different types of clouds, organizations can more closely meet the varied needs of their application portfolio. It makes sense to choose a cloud service provider that offers a complete mix of public, private and hybrid cloud options.
