Public Cloud service providers share infrastructure across many different users, business departments or companies, while retaining the robust security and accessibility that Private Cloud solutions offer, but without the cost involved in acquiring private datacentre storage.
While the term might be off putting, Public Cloud hosting is perfectly suitable for a whole range of businesses, because it means that you can use off-the-shelf products and services that are fit for purpose at any given time.
Public Cloud hosting has three main benefits. It’s an easy and inexpensive solution to set up, with the hardware, application and bandwidth costs being covered by the provider in question. It offers durable scalability, to meet your growing needs, and there are no wasted resources because you pay for what you use.
