Public clouds are the most pervasive and well-known cloud computing model. All the resources needed to run the infrastructure – servers, storage, networking components, and supporting software – are owned and managed by the third-party provider, and accessed by your users over the Internet via a web browser. .
A public cloud is like renting an apartment, while a private cloud is like renting a similarly sized house. The house is more private, but it also typically costs more to rent, and it's not the most efficient use of resources. Maintenance in the apartment is handled by the building supervisor, but it's harder to get a contractor out to fix the house (sometimes, the tenant may have to do it themselves).
Moving to a public cloud is a way for companies to cut down IT operations costs. Essentially, you are outsourcing these costs to a third party who can handle them more efficiently. Public clouds also typically cost less than private clouds, because the cloud provider is able to maximise their use of hardware and their profits by selling their services to multiple customers at once.
Our team o experts handles all of this for you, meaning you don’t need to employ a large in-house team of IT professionals to run, manage, and optimise the environment.
With traditional on-premises systems, as much as 80% of IT time and resources are consumed by merely “keeping the lights on.” The public cloud eliminates most of this expense and complexity. This lets you maintain a much smaller cadre of IT experts in-house, focused on building and delivering high-value products and services.
Providers possess immense resources that you can scale up whenever needed to meet periods of peak demand and then scale down again afterward.
