Which Cloud Model Is Right For You?

It can get confusing looking at the different types of cloud solutions:

  • Public cloud
  • Private cloud
  • Hybrid cloud
  • Virtual private network
  • Colocation service
  • Dedicated server
  • Managed server
  • Community cloud

It seems like a new cloud model is invented every day. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Despite all your study, you are having a tough time coming up with a list of benefits and drawbacks for each model so that you can make a real analysis of the field. That’s OK. Cloud computing is still relatively new. There’s a lot to learn.

The good news is you don’t have to make a decision today. A decision such as this should take you a few months anyway. You’ll need to collect the data, analyze it, compare models, compare services and narrow down your choices before you settle on a solution. Maybe it’s time to consider a cloud consultant, someone who can help walk you through the decisions and assist you in finding the right one for you.
