All cloud storage is NOT created equal
The cloud has been widely misunderstood, and with so many different types of cloud storage it's no wonder. Not all cloud storage is created equal, so it's important to understand the differences in order to know what option is best for your business.
Private Cloud Storage is a type of cloud-based storage that is often dedicated and accessible by a single organization, offering the highest level of privacy and security. With a private cloud, an organization is responsible for the cost and accountability of building out, managing and maintaining the IT infrastructure required to support the private cloud.
Public Cloud Storage is a type of cloud-based storage that is offered by cloud providers that own and manage the entire cloud architecture for you. These public cloud storage providers (like AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, etc.) are responsible for managing and maintaining all of the hardware, software and IT infrastructure, while you benefit from the cost savings of sharing the resources with other businesses.
Hybrid Cloud Storage is a type of cloud-based storage that converges both private and public cloud storage infrastructures with a management platform that spans these environments allowing data and applications to be shared between them. Since companies maintain different categories of data, this type of storage allows organizations to store confidential data in a private cloud, while taking advantage of the cost savings of public cloud for data that is not regulated or confidential in nature.
Community Cloud Storage is a hybrid form of private cloud storage that is multi-tenant in nature and specifically designed for a target business community. This cloud model, often managed by a service provider, provides a cloud infrastructure that is shared by several organizations with common concerns in terms of security and compliance.
