Cloud Services versus Cloud Types

22nd Jan 2021

Today we share the difference between cloud services and cloud types.

Let’s keep it simple.

Cloud Services

There are three main service models of cloud computing:

  1. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  2. Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  3. Software as a Service (SaaS)

VXC_082_GRA---The-Different-Types-of-Cloud-Computing-and-How-They-DifferThere are four cloud deployment models: public, private, community, and hybrid. Each deployment model is defined according to where the infrastructure for the environment is located.

Hybrid cloud refers to a mixed computing, storage, and services environment made up of on-premises infrastructure, private cloud services, and a public cloud—such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure—with orchestration among the various platforms.

Hybrid cloud implementations are growing as customers migrate services and applications in piece-meal rather than a big bang.
