Cloud Computing Deployment Models

 Cloud Computing Deployment Models:

Let’s expand on the cloud deployment models and provide additional examples for each:

Public Cloud Model:

Definition: In the public cloud, the service provider owns the infrastructure and offers it to the public for consumption. It’s highly scalable and accessible via the internet.


Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2): A popular public cloud service that provides resizable compute capacity in the form of virtual servers.

Microsoft Azure: Offers a wide range of services, including virtual machines, databases, and AI tools.

Google App Engine: A platform for building and deploying web applications without managing servers12.

Private Cloud Model:

Definition: A private cloud is fully owned and managed by a single tenant (usually an organization). It provides more control and security.


OpenStack: An open-source private cloud platform that allows organizations to create and manage their own cloud infrastructure.

VMware vSphere: Enables virtualization and private cloud management within an organization’s data center.

Hybrid Cloud Model:

Definition: Combines public and private cloud elements, allowing seamless integration between on-premises and cloud resources.


IBM Cloud: Offers hybrid cloud solutions, allowing organizations to connect their existing infrastructure with public cloud services.

Oracle Cloud: Provides tools for building hybrid applications that span both on-premises and cloud environments.

Community Cloud Model:

Definition: Shared by several organizations (usually in the same industry) with common interests or requirements.


Healthcare Community Cloud: Used by healthcare providers to share patient data securely while adhering to industry regulations3.

Multi-Cloud Model:

Definition: Utilizes services from multiple cloud providers simultaneously.


Salesforce Heroku: A platform for building, deploying, and managing applications across different clouds.

IBM Cloud + AWS: Organizations may use IBM Cloud services alongside Amazon AWS for specific workloads14.

Remember, the choice of deployment model depends on an organization’s specific needs, priorities, and existing infrastructure.
