Public Cloud Architecture
Public Cloud Architecture
A public cloud is a cloud model offered by cloud service providers to serve more than one organization. It is sometimes referred to as a multi-tenant cloud model. Unlike the private architecture, the server providing the cloud services is located in the data centers owned and managed by the provider. Amazon Web Services leads all the providers of this service, followed by Microsoft Azure. The public cloud provides all the cloud needs a private cloud provides. However, it seems to have higher patronage because the cloud service providers carry out all technical functions. Since the vendor takes full responsibility for the entire process involved in the development, operation, and management of the server, patronizing organizations must have their needs fully defined so the cloud server can deliver efficiently. So if you are not sure of your requirements, going for the public cloud might not be an intelligent move. The following are its benefits.
Benefits of Public Cloud Architecture
Because public cloud architecture is deployed to serve different organizations that may have distinct needs, the public cloud is equipped with various components. So users of the public cloud have a wide range of functions that would meet their individual cloud needs.
Scalability is the ability of a server to effectively handle every spike in traffic. If you host a website on a cloud server, for instance, there is a spike in traffic by implication. This is where the functionality of your site would be tested. If it is scalable, the spike won’t result in downtime. However, if it is not scalable, the response time increases, leaving your users/visitors with a bad user experience. Because public clouds are built to serve multiple tenants, their virtual storage space is vast enough to handle all your scalability needs. All that it requires is to subscribe to a plan of your choice.
Historically, a major problem that led to the cloud movement several years ago is the inability of companies operating self-hosting to successfully merge the technical demands of that option with their day-to-day operations. Cloud servers require high-level technical know-how to keep them running in a secured and functional way. Public cloud architecture is a big plus in this aspect. Since cloud providers undertake all technical functions, businesses can focus on how to meet their organizational goals.
Most cloud service providers are reputable organizations that hugely on the security of their platforms. The likes of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and others who are toping the cloud sphere employ world-class professionals to manage their security framework. So in leveraging their services, your data is secured with the same framework that secures all their platforms.
