    Unhappy Cloud Computing – Types of cloud services


    There are several methods of cloud services categorization, based on the used cloud architecture. According to the specific architecture, the cloud services are divided on 5 main types: Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Community Cloud, and Managed Cloud. Public cloud services are normally available to all users through a specific cloud based service. These services could be offered for free or with predefined usage costs. The biggest and most popular public cloud providers are Amazon, Cisco, Dell, Google, HP, Microsoft, Rackspace, etc… Each Private cloud is dedicated to a single company/organization/firm/user and it can be fully managed, semi-managed, or unmanaged. All hybrid clouds are a complex ``composition `` of 2 or more other cloud types. For example, you can rent a hybrid service, which could feature both public and private cloud. Community cloud is literally a shared cloud environment, where the cloud infrastructure is used by multiple companies/organizations in similar business sector. For example, different hospitals, security firms, etc., could be using the services based on the community cloud. The managed cloud is initially created and then completely maintained/modified by the cloud hosting provider. These are the basic cloud services types and their short definitions. If you have any questions, please ask in this thread.

    RE: Cloud Computing – Types of cloud services

    Thanks for this thread Max, this is very informative, I have several questions about some of this architecture but I will ask some other time since I am busy at the moment. I am surprised that there are so many big companies that are adapting already to Cloud technology, this will definitely be the next best thing in Web Hosting.

    RE: Cloud Computing – Types of cloud services

    Max, the private Cloud is fully managed by the company right? As I understand by what you said, it is only dedicated for the Company, its services and other features...Can you please site some company example that are using Cloud Hosting?

    SaaS was one of the first technical adoptions of the cloud in the last few years, Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) have also become viable solutions and maybe more beneficial to companies than just software.
