There are four different common cloud deployment models that help dictate where services are hosted. Each model helps determine who has access to data and information, who is managing the cloud, and the customization of each service.
Now a days, employers spend significant time purchasing, managing, upgrading and administering services. It’s often known that these responsibilities are time-consuming and pull you away from any important tasks at your agency. Lucky enough, the cloud has really transformed these operations and have led to a radical shift in the way organizations conduct business.
In today’s business world it is important to select the right cloud for your organization.
What Cloud solution is:
- Open: Oracle can provide key components for your cloud, like database, middleware and applications, all built on open standards.
- Integrated: From business process related to human resources, financial management, procurement and customer relationship management, they can all be integrated with the Oracle cloud.
- Secure: With an aggressive approach to security, Oracle offers a holistic solution to safely secure your agencies information in the cloud, while meeting federally mandated security standards.
- Complete: The Oracle cloud is complete, as it offers software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), along with options for on premise and hybrid clouds to meet your business objectives.
Four types of Cloud Solutions:
The Public Cloud:
A public cloud is a cloud deployment built and managed by a Cloud Service Provider (CSP). Customers have limited visibility into the architecture of the service and cannot specify particular security protocols or service offerings. These are chosen by the CSP for all customers.
The Private Cloud:
A private cloud is a cloud deployment that is used exclusively for one customer. The customer can define everything about the cloud: the infrastructure, the security, the service offerings, the service level objectives. This does not mean the customer has to own or manage the cloud themselves, it just means it is exclusively under their control.
The Hybrid Cloud:
Consists of two or more deployment models. For instance, a hybrid cloud will contain both a public and private cloud and can easily segment data and transfer data between clouds as necessary.
The Community Cloud:
A community cloud is a model that provides access to multiple organizations that have similar interests in collaboration. This may look like a private cloud for one government organization, and a public cloud to other government organizations that share the services in the community cloud.
