Virtual Servers

Cloud hosting is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) delivery model that provides a suite of on-demand hosted services that can be used for computing and storage. Simply put, cloud hosting consists of a network of servers acting as one, providing the ability to store data and run business applications.

Cloud computing largely negates the need to run and manage physical servers on-site, allowing businesses to work more efficiently and scale on demand. Cloud computing is increasingly important and popular in recent years thanks to the agility it offers, as well as considerable cost savings, significantly greater capacity and access to a plethora of managed services at the ‘click of a button’. Cloud computing delivers clear value to both service provider and the organisation. Whilst it provides businesses with cheaper, quicker, and more feasible ways to keep up with technology trends, it also offers service providers better ways to serve its customers.

There are typically four cloud deployment strategies to consider – private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud and multi-cloud. Each have their own advantages and draw backs. Every business is unique – when planning cloud adoption, one of the first steps is to determine which deployment option is right for the organisation.

Private Cloud

A private cloud (often referred to as on-premise data center) is a dedicated, on-demand infrastructure and resources that are owned and managed by the organisation to deliver services to users. Users access the services via the company’s private network, and in some cases, over the public internet.


  • Typically used by large Enterprises
  • Used to ensure compliance with Regulatory or Governance demands
  • Leverage an existing investment in IT infrastructure

Public Cloud

Public clouds are shared, on-demand infrastructure and resources delivered by a third-party provider to deliver services to users.. In a public cloud deployment scenario, the organisation utilizes one or more types of cloud services such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) from public hyperscalers such as AWS, Google, or Azure, without relying to any degree on private cloud (on-premises) infrastructure. Public cloud platforms offer on demand delivery of IT resources over the internet with pay-as-you-go pricing reducing demand for capital investment and ensuring you are buying just the right amount of resources needed for your business avoiding the cost challenges of over or under provisioning resources.


A hybrid cloud is a combination of public cloud and private cloud services, working together to deliver services to users efficiency across operations and infrastructure. Hybrid cloud deployments are very popular because it allows organisations that wish to shift to a public cloud, to migrate more modern services first whilst gradually getting rid of legacy workloads or to decouple your application environment for security, efficiency or redundancy.


A multi-cloud is any combination of one or more public clouds and private clouds. For example, you can subscribe to selected services from multiple Cloud Service Providers (CSP) such as Azure, AWS, and Google, depending on the business’ needs and/or the unique propositions presented by the respective hyperscaler. By leveraging multi-cloud orchestration tools such as Kubernetes, application workloads can seamlessly be migrated from one CSP to another and back again with no impact on user performance or uptime.
