What is Cloud?
In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive. Clouds can be classified as public, private or hybrid.
A private cloud is a particular model of cloud computing that involves a distinct and secure cloud based environment in which only the specified client can operate.
A public cloud is basically the Internet. Service providers use the Internet to make resources, such as applications (also known as Software-as-a-Service or SaaS) and storage, available to the general public, or on a "public cloud".
By using a hybrid cloud, organisations can gain the benefits of a managed private cloud while relying on the public cloud as needed, notably for SaaS.
