7 Possible Cloud Deployment Models

Introduction

Cloud computing has become a popular topic in recent years. The cloud deployment models outlined in this article are by no means an exhaustive list, but they will give you a starting point from which to explore the many possibilities that exist for your organization.

Public cloud: This is the most common deployment model.

The public cloud is the most common deployment model because it’s easy to set up and manage, it’s cheap, it’s flexible and reliable.

The biggest benefit of the public cloud is its scalability–you can easily add more resources when you need them. This makes your application respond faster when there are more users or if there are spikes in traffic (like at Christmas). It also means that you don’t need to think about how much storage space or computing power your application will need at any given time; this is taken care of by an external provider like Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure who will scale up resources automatically as needed without incurring any additional costs for you!

Private cloud: A private cloud is a cloud computing infrastructure that is built for exclusive use by a single organization.

Private cloud: A private cloud is a cloud computing infrastructure that is built for exclusive use by a single organization. Private clouds are often built on premises, managed by the organization itself, and used to provide services to internal users.

Private clouds can be deployed in many different ways depending on what kind of control you want over your data. Some companies choose to build their own private clouds while others prefer to use third-party providers who offer managed services that require no upfront capital investment or maintenance costs beyond those associated with normal usage (e.g., electricity).

Community or hybrid cloud: These types of deployment models combine and integrate two or more clouds to provide better scalability, reliability and fault tolerance.

Hybrid cloud is a combination of two or more clouds that are integrated and leveraged to provide better scalability, reliability and fault tolerance. Hybrid clouds can be used to deploy applications in a secure environment. This type of deployment model allows you to use the best of both worlds: public and private clouds.

Hybrid cloud has become an attractive option for large enterprises because it offers them an easy way to integrate multiple data centers into one cohesive system.

Bare-metal

In the bare-metal model, you rent a physical server that is dedicated to a single user. This arrangement is sometimes called “dedicated hosting” or “managed hosting” because the provider manages all aspects of your infrastructure and software stack for you. This can be an attractive option for someone who wants their own dedicated hardware but doesn’t want to deal with managing it themselves; however, it’s also more expensive than virtualized environments since there are no additional costs associated with creating and maintaining virtual machines (VMs).

Software as a service (SaaS)

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a model for providing access to a shared pool of configurable software, which can be deployed and run on demand. The consumer does not need to have the expertise to configure or maintain the software themselves, but instead relies on the provider to manage all these tasks. SaaS applications are hosted in the cloud and accessed by users through a web browser.

There are many ways to deploy and use cloud computing.

Cloud computing is a way to deliver IT services. Cloud computing has many deployment models and can be used in various ways. It’s also known as on-demand computing, utility computing, or pay-per-use services. With cloud computing you get access to services that are hosted on the cloud instead of having to install your own hardware and software systems at your office or home office (or “oh”).

Benefits of using cloud computing include:

  • Reduced costs – You only pay for what you use; there are no upfront capital expenditures or maintenance costs associated with owning your own hardware; all maintenance is done by someone else (the provider).
  • Increased flexibility – You don’t need dedicated IT staff; employees can log in remotely from anywhere at any time without needing training on how their systems work because everything happens automatically through an internet connection.*

Conclusion

As we’ve seen, there are many possible deployment models for cloud computing. Which one is right for you? It depends on your needs and goals. Each model offers different benefits and disadvantages, so it’s important to choose one that fits both your budget and your organizational goals.
