Public Cloud Images (by
Public cloud is an IT model where on-demand computing services and infrastructure are managed by a third-party provider and shared with multiple organizations using the public Internet. Public cloud service providers may offer cloud-based services such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), or software as a service (Saas) to users for either a monthly or pay-per-use fee, eliminating the need for users to host these services on site in their own data center.

Public cloud makes computing resources available to anyone for purchase. Multiple users typically share the use of a public cloud. In contrast, private cloud involves cloud-based services that are hosted within an organization’s own private servers.

Private Cloud Images by Citrix
Private cloud is a type of cloud computing that delivers similar advantages to public cloud, including scalability.
Private cloud is a computing model that offers a proprietary environment dedicated to a single business entity. As with other types of cloud computing environments, private cloud provides extended, virtualized computing resources via physical components stored on-premises or at a vendor’s datacenter.

One of the chief advantages of a private cloud deployment is the enhanced degree of control offered to the organization. Because the private cloud is only accessible to a single business, that organization can configure the environment and manage it in a manner that is uniquely tailored to the specific computing needs of the company.
