Have you started looking into cloud computing and are wondering whether the public cloud option or the private cloud option is for you? Well, if you are beginning your research into cloud hosting then allow me to steer you toward private cloud computing.
Public clouds are accessible to everyone. But if you are setting up your cloud computing so that only members of your organization can access it and interact with it then you should opt for the private cloud. Set it up behind your firewall and maintain your security.
If you want your digital files to be read-only then I recommend a private cloud.
If you are establishing a backup or archive for your organization then I recommend a private cloud.
If you are creating a computing environment to share files between multiple geographic locations within your organization then I recommend a private cloud.
If you are planning to keep your data long term and are planning to store a huge amount of data in one space then a private cloud with security is your best option. That is especially true if you want to safeguard your data.
