What is Public Cloud Computing?
Public Cloud is a Cloud Computing service provided to the general public. We stayed registering as a user or can directly use the existing services. Many Public Cloud services are free, and there is also a need to pay to be able to enjoy the service.
Examples of the free Public Cloud include Twitter, Facebook, GMail, Windows Live Mail, etc.
Examples of paid Public Cloud include Amazon EC2, Windows Azure, Adobe Creative Cloud, Office 365, SalesForce, etc.
- We do not need investment and maintaining the infrastructure, platform or application. Stay put for free (for a service which is free) or pay-as far as we use (pay as you go).
- Depends on the quality of internet services we use, if the internet connection dies, we cannot use the service. For that we need to think carefully its internet infrastructure.
- Not all service providers, ensure the security of our data. For that we need to be careful to choose the provider’s Public Cloud. Learn in detail about the profile and the Service Level Agreement of the service provider.
