As the bloggers over at Avaya recently noted in their post The Top 7 Communication Trends of 2014, cloud computing is one of the most popular new methods of business communication. And it is easy to see how it has gained such popularity; cloud computing allows businesses to stay connected with their employees and their clients through a shared IT infrastructure. From data to media to applications, cloud computing allows many people to have access to the same, essential things. But within the overarching cloud computing system, you have two options: public and private. What are the benefits of each and which will best suit your business communication needs? Advanced Communication System is here to tell you.
The Public Cloud
The public cloud is, as the name would suggest, a more public service. Businesses who participate in public cloud computing often do not own the space provided by the cloud; instead, either a cloud infrastructure vendor or another company will “own” and operate the cloud. This has its advantages as well as its drawbacks. Public clouds are more popular amongst businesses that want to assign the responsibility of maintaining the cloud and the information therein to a third party rather than having their own employees manage it. While they spend the money on the system, your own business, in a public cloud situation, does consequently have less control over what the system can do and what it can provide.
The Private Cloud
The private cloud, on the other hand, is controlled by the primary business. This means that the performance of the cloud system and, perhaps more importantly, the security of it, are within your immediate reach. However, because a private cloud must be created, managed, and updated by your own company, this can lead to further expenses and liability.
