servers in that system.

Advantages:

  • Less expensive
  • Standard environment
  • High level of scalability

Disdvantages:

  • System interruptions
  • No dedicated resources
  • Lack of control
  • Little customization

The Private Cloud

This environment is only accessible to users of a single organization and all resources are provided behind a secure firewall. No apartments here, only houses. All accounts have their own server with exclusive access to resources in that system.

Examples: Azure Private Cloud, Fpweb.net Cloud.


Advantages:

  • Your own server
  • More control & customization
  • Custom built to your needs
  • Enterprise-grade security
  • Enterprise-grade availability
  • Enterprise-grade reliability
  • Highly level of scalability
