There they can store their servers and data off-site in a public domain that can be accessed by users through the internet. Public clouds are computer services offered on the public internet by third-party providers to be sold on demand or offered for free in some cases. These services come in a one-size-fits-all model and are easily accessible to anyone who wishes to purchase them. The alternative private clouds require higher investment and management as well as hardware and application infrastructure maintenance, but in exchange provide higher security and, of course, fewer risks. At first glance, public clouds appear to be the more affordable and accessible alternative to the more complex and expensive private cloud. However, after factoring in the potential risks and damages, investing in private clouds could help minimise security concerns and possible cloud outages that can easily cost more in damages in the long run.
