The system of clouds is just fascinating, isn’t it? All sorts of data appear in your hand as soon as you ask for it. But have you wondered how? Yes, we know that the cloud stores our data and then provides us with the same
as when we want them. But how come the data never get confused or combined? Not even by the remotest chance can you come across data of a company, nor can your data ever get across to someone else? So, how does this system function, though? Various cloud deployment models look after the different client requirements. What are they? Let’s see.
What are cloud deployment models?
Deployment refers to the user of the resources already available to you. Cloud deployment models are therefore the different ways via which you
can access the data in a cloud account.
Cloud storage is available to all of us irrespective of what our requirements are. But the same open-heartedness cannot be exhibited when the resources are to be given up. A particular procedure needs to be followed then to ensure that data of different individuals or companies do not get overlapped or confused.
That is where the different cloud deployment models come into play. They decide which data is to be sourced out to where and when.
Kinds of cloud deployment models
Now that we understand what the work of cloud computing models is, let’s see what the different ways are in which the data gets resourced out. The following are the basic kinds of cloud computing deployment models that there are.
Public deployment model:
What is it: “What’s in a name?”, right? But in this case, the name speaks for itself. A public deployment model ensures that the data it contains can be used and accessed by all users. Here the cloud resources are operated as well as owned by a third-party cloud service provider. The hardware and software used by the companies who indulge in public cloud deployment
models are also owned by that third-party cloud service provider.
Advantages: Using a public deployment model to manage their resources, can benefit businesses to a large extent. Let’s see some of the advantages that they guarantee.
1. Using this cloud deployment model, the company can cut its costs to a
large extent, as both hardware and software, are shared.
2. You do not need to stress about the maintenance of the hardware, or worry about the stored data, as that is the cloud service provider’s headache.
3. The vast connection of servers ensures that the changing demands of clients are met. This provides nearly unlimited scalability.
Private deployment model
What is it: Under this model, cloud computing resources can be and is used by only one company. They can maintain the resources themselves or ask a third-party cloud service provider to do the same. But the infrastructure, as well as the services, are always limited to a private network. No third party can access the same.
Advantages: Private deployment model of cloud computing has its perks as well. What are they? Let’s see.
1. Since the system is limited to a private concern, it is therefore quite flexible. You can keep on customizing the cloud environment as and when you want.
2. They grant you more control over your system- just as it should be.
3. They to some extent are more secured than public deployment models as here, the resources are and can be accessed by only one party.
Hybrid cloud deployment model
What is it: Want to have the best of both worlds? Then Hybrid cloud deployment is your answer. This model combines the models of private and
public cloud deployment and makes it easier and more beneficial for the
companies. They let the resources move between the two platforms.
1. More resources confirm flexibility. Depending on what kind of the client you are serving you can stick to the preferred model accordingly.
2. Your company will also experience reduced costs. As you can
access the public deployment model as well, you seldom need to pay for extra resources.
3. Flexibility is one of the major advantages here. You can shift between the cloud environments as and when you feel suitable. Based on what their needs are, companies can choose which cloud model or cloud models they would like to indulge in. It is noteworthy here that, with time, Hybrid cloud deployment models are gradually emerging as the best choice in this regard. Development in the field is still ongoing, though.
