managing the cloud
A public cloud is a platform that uses the standard cloud computing model to make resources, such as virtual machines (VMs), applications or storage, available to users remotely. Public cloud services are offered through a variety of subscription or on-demand pricing schemes, including a pay-per-usage model.
Some advantages of public cloud are:
For most organizations, public cloud service providers offer better security than you can achieve on premises. Big cloud vendors attract talented engineers and spend big money on large security teams and the best tools available. They undergo penetration testing regularly and are held to tougher standards than on-premises solutions and private clouds. But still, cloud security is a shared responsibility for you and the cloud provider, which does introduce new levels of complexity.
The service provider is responsible for the management and maintenance of the data center(s) in which data is stored. You do not need to select, buy, install systems, configure and assemble servers, and create connectivity. You can adopt agile workflows, reducing lead times in testing and deploying new products and services.
No capital investments
There’s no need to purchase equipment or the space to house it. Public cloud subscriptions cost little to set up, and then you only pay for the resources you use. Public cloud transforms your infrastructure spend from capital expense (CapEx) to operating expense (OpEx).
You only pay for what you use, which eliminates wasted spending on unused resources. You also have the flexibility to easily scale up or down, using more compute capacity when you need it, less when you don’t. You do need to make sure you control the spend on cloud resources.
