When it comes to cloud, there’s no one type that’s right for everyone. Several different cloud computing models, types, and services have evolved to meet the rapidly changing technology needs of organizations. There is little functional difference between a public and private cloud platform. Each empowers users with the capability to launch virtual servers in a data center within minutes, each is inherently scalable, and each can be controlled, integrated, and automated via an API.

What is a Public Cloud?
A public cloud environment is a collection of physical servers hosted in a data center that are each designed to perform a single function. For instance, one node will be dedicated to providing storage to the cloud. Another node may handle memory, CPU, or other backup functions. Finally, a control node will manage all of the nodes and migrate virtual servers in the event that a node goes offline.

What is a Private Cloud?
Both private and public clouds utilize the same underlying technology as far as how resources are distributed. In a private cloud, these resources are only used by a single client. That means the cloud infrastructure is purpose-built for a single organization and no other users share any of the server nodes.

Public Cloud vs. Private Cloud Comparison

Security- There’s no reason — broadly speaking — that public clouds should provide any less security than a private cloud platform. A well-engineered public cloud platform presents more-or-less the same security risks as a private cloud platform; the true risk is in the details. Both public and private cloud platforms are likely to be more secure than any platform a company may build in-house.

Scalability- A key benefit of the public cloud is almost limitless scalability. At the level of the virtual environment, both public and private clouds are capable of quickly deploying virtual servers in-line with demand, but private clouds are limited to the physical hardware that an organization has available to it.

Performance- A private cloud puts the entirety of the platform’s resources, including IO, processing power, memory, and storage at the disposal of a single organization. That makes a private cloud the perfect choice for applications — including financial, scientific, and big data applications — that depend on the lowest possible latencies.
