Problems understanding how cloud computing works

More than ever the term "cloud" is being used to describe lots of computing areas and often the term isn't very helpful.

 "Cloud" is often being used to describe various IT solutions and services often without explaining to the unwary buyer what exactly is meant. 

A Simple Explanation

A Good Example

Why Does It Matter?

So how does cloud affect IT infrastructure?

In lots of ways! Simply put, IT infrastructure fits into three categories:


Private Cloud

In this category lies a huge range of capabilities from global infrastructure players like Microsoft Azure to private individuals running services from their homes - all under the name of "Cloud". So be aware about the capabilities of the services you are buying. 



Equipment that resides in the location that it is mostly used from e.g. a head office. Before the internet arrived most IT infrastructure was deployed on-premise.


Public Cloud

These are infrastructure as a service offerings (IaaS) where the services are accessed through an online management interface or control panel. The major players being Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google.
