Private cloud vs. public cloud. What’s the difference?
According to Dr. James Bondra, Chief Technical Advisor, Dynamic Systems, Inc., public and private cloud models have an array of differences – and agencies must be aware of the limitations. Private clouds offer agencies a controlled, defined environment. With localized and defined workloads, controlled boundaries, and limited computing power variations, private clouds can be restricting, especially in today’s rapidly transforming world.
Public clouds offer a more flexible model that is subscription-based and only charges users for the compute they require. With easy access and scalability, public clouds offer agencies the agility needed to tackle projects today and, in the future, shared Bondra.
So, how can agencies make their private cloud perform like a public cloud? By following these four steps.
Organizational Overview: The first step to performing more like a public cloud is to gain a full view of your organization. What infrastructure is needed? How will this impact your IT team? What projects do you have coming up that will require workload? How do you share compute power across the entire organization/portfolio?
Flexible Pricing: The public cloud offers a subscription-based pricing model that is budget-friendly and ready to take on any large projects.
Time to Market: Getting projects up and running can be slow, but with the flexibility and scalability of the public cloud, it doesn’t need to be.
