“Cloud Computing” means different things to
different people, and that’s OK.
Computing in which applications, data and IT resources are provided to end users as services delivered over a network.
Public Clouds- Allows access to technology-enabled services without knowledge of, expertise with, or control over the technology infrastructure that supports them.- Also called “external cloud.”
Private Clouds- Activities and functions are provided “as a service,” over a company’s intranet. - Built by an organization for its own users, and everything is delivered within the organization’s firewall (instead of the Internet). - Organization has knowledge of the infrastructure and possibly some control.- The private cloud owner does not share resources with any other companies.
- Also called an “internal cloud.”
Hybrid Clouds- External and internal service delivery methods are integrated. - Rules and policies are established by the organization based on factors such as security needs, criticality and underlying architecture.- Activities and tasks are allocated to external or internal clouds as appropriate.
Co- LocationDedicated data center facility designed with resources which includes a secured suite, cage or cabinet, regulated power, dedicated Internet connection, security and basic support.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)Raw computing power. Includes servers, networks, storage, management, and reporting.

Cloud Computing is not a “one size fits all” solution.
There are some REAL benefits
to Cloud Computing.
Security is a major consideration when deploying
Cloud Computing, but Cloud Computing MAY be more secure than on-premise computing.
